BDE configuration lost on installation
2008-06-19 09:10:44 AM
I've been using a default BDE configuration to install on my client's PCs
Now, for some unknown reason, the configuration is lost. Not the database.
That stuff comes across fine. But Installshield persists in returning the
configuration to the original. Mine has DBASE as the default database and
MAXFILEHANDLES set to 255. They get reset to PARADOX and 48.
The install is built using Installshield 2 on a Win 2000 box. I'm testing
the installation on XP Pro.
I've set the cfg file in the Installshield redist directory as the default
BDE configuration for the Win2K PC. But the configuration still gets
I've tried all sorts of fiddles and am currently resaughting to sending the
cfg file as separate to be installed on its own. I'm not happy about that
as too many things can go wrong and it assumes technical nouse that meny of
my clients don't have.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
