View Full Version : Can't Install BDE 4.0 with ISX 2.01

We are trying to install BDE 4.0 with ISX 2.01. The fileset that is
created is incorrect. For example, the file BDECFG32.exe is included
in the set, although in BDE 4.0, it should be BDEADMIN.EXE. I
contacted IS about this and was told that the filesets are built
according to what is on the system. I do not have this file anywhere
on my system, nor is it in the registry anywhere. I therefore believe
that there is more going on with respect to filesets.

Has anyone figured out a way to install BDE 4.0 (and SQL Links) using
ISX 2.01? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

p.s. We are working around this by using the Express version that
comes with Delphi 3.0. This is not a complete solution for us,
because we need an International version. This is why we bought the
ISX 2 software. Also there is an Error 401 problem with the Delphi
version that I have another posting about.

BDE 3.5 and earlier used BDECFG32.EXE. BDE 4.0 uses BDEADMIN.EXE. However
you can remove the file reference to BDECFG32.EXE and add BDEADMIN.EXE
manually by dragging it into the correct group.

I find that you can usually fix this by going into the features
page, turning BDE off, then turning it on again. This is a bit of
a pain if you are using a partial install but should fix things.
I just upgraded to BDE 4.01, and we are using InstallShield Express
2.01, and it works fine.
