View Full Version : Borland BDE initialization error

11-13-1997, 01:00 AM
After running my install, choosing to run my application, I get the
Borland BDE initialization error. I read a message about someone having
the same problem. The answer was....

IS Express is not setting the BDE DLLPATH in the registry. Under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Borland\Database Engine in the Registry set the
key DLLPATH to the path where the BDE was installed.

I am still not sure what to put in my installation to make this work. I do
not want to deal with the machine that I installed the application on.

What BDE installation did you choose? Please choose a FULL BDE Install. It
should fix the problem.

I can recommend the Bullet Proof Installs book, very helpful - esp. with
custom dialogs etc,...

Hi there!

Would it not be fair to state that InstallShield 6.10 is crowded with bugs
??? so you have to run fixes, that don't fix all of'em ? Well, if I was
working for a serious company I would....hehe!

One question - how is the number of bugs in InstallShield compared to other
installation-tools ????? *That* I don't know - anyone ???

Hello William,

You can purchase the training manuals that are used in the class from our
training department. That would be your best bet as far as getting used to
InstallShield Professional 6.x.
For more information please contact our training department at
