Whenever some customers of mine try to install an application created with
Delphi 5 and they already have an older version created with Delphi 3, the
BDE refuses to merge the IDAPI.CFG file and the new application will not
This happens in every case when the Delphi 3 version of BDE is already
installed on the machine. For some reason the merge file name reported by
Installshield is not IDAPI32.CFG but IDAPI.CFG.
I have read all the stories on Borland website but is there a simple way of
reinstalling the BDE?
I am not comfortable with customers deleting things from registry as they
are mostly computer illiterate people.
