View Full Version : Aliases ? BDE INSTALLShield Express Delphi 2.0

Ok so I decided that it would be alright if we actually used to the BDE.
I had been avoiding it up until now becuase it looks terribly
complicated to install.

I used InstallShield Express and made a database alias THE SAME name as
I created for the database in my project( using dbf files). Copied my
one *dbf file and its indexes into the directory I use for creating my
distribution , etc. etc.

When I tested the install on my machine it stuffed up my existing Alias
.... I guess I have to use a different alias or try the install on another
machine ?

When I installed it on a test machine it crashed DURING the INSTALL on a
call to IDAPINST.DLL . I have n't any idea what this problem could be.

On a third test machine, it installed but DID NOT create the database
ALIAS.

Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted.

TIA
