When trying to create a database alias, the "TYPE" list is not
available. When I click on the droplist, the list is blank. I tried
using the "Additional Parameters" to overcome the problem, but that
did nothing.

Steps taken:

Select Object for Dephi, General
BDE, Settings, Full BDE Install...
New Alias... (Simply CompDB or TestDB)

..... Step 3 or 4...

Select "CompDB" Alias
Path: <INSTALLDIR>\Data
Type: nothing is shown.... nothing available.


I have uninstalled and re-installed IS Express for Delphi twice,
checked Registry entries, etc. The application does install, and runs
after I manually create the alias on each PC using the BDE Admin.

Thanks for any suggestions,
