View Full Version : Setting system variables in the BDE

I've asked this question before but I seem to have lost the answer.

I am installing the 16-bit BDE v2.52 with my Delphi 1.02 app using ISX v1.11
and I need to set the LOCAL SHARE system setting to TRUE during the install.
What is the best way to do this?

Since my application does not require any BDE aliases my install does not
create any. Is this part of the problem. It doesn't appear that there is
an interface in ISX to configure the system variables.

Thanks in advance!

Hmmmm... You can certainly use an extension to set that parameter. You can
search through the online Knowledge Base at InstallShield for the format of
the extensions functions, and you can contact Borland as to how to
configure the BDE variables.

Contact me if you have more questions.
