I have a Delphi 3 installation created using ISX 2.01, but when I test
it out on another machine, the BDE aliases are not created. I can
create them programmatically, but ISX fails to create any of them.

Any ideas ?

Mark.

Do the ALIASes exist on the remote machine? Have you provided pathnames and
the like?

The directories for the aliases are all correct, and I have provided
pathnames, etc in the ISX setup. However, on the target machine, the
aliases are simply not created.

Hmmm... make sure the ALIAS you are trying to create is not in the
IDAPI.CFG on the target machine.

The paths being <INSTALLDIR>\whatever\ ? I'm going to run a few tests this
afternoon to see if I come up with the same problems.
