View Full Version : BDE - Oracle Driver Parameters

Would anyone know how to specify the parameters for an Oracle Driver in
the BDE. Because the only way that I've found so far to modify those
parameters (VENDOR INIT is the main parameter I'm looking at), is (once
the installation is complete on the TARGET machine) to launch the
BDECFG32.EXE and modify it MANUALLY! And that we would like to avoid.

Thanks
Mike

Did you try, in the 3rd screen of the BDE Alias setup, type under _Optional
Parameters_ "VENDOR INIT=<whatever>"?

I did somthing similar for Sybase and it seemed to work.

Hope this helps

Tried it but it doesn't work.

I found that VENDOR INIT is stored in the registry whereas the "optional
parameters" box in IS Express Pro is only for the BDE config file. The
only way we found to update this value is through the registry
directly. I do this on start up of my application if the change is
required instead of in IS Express. You may have already figured all
this out since I'm posting so late.
