"Could Not Find Object" Error 8712

Hello

We constantly get the "Could Not Find Object" error when trying to run
the BDE Administrator. Once we clear the popup error window we can use
the "Configuration" tab of the Administrator only. Clicking on the
Database tab brings up the error again.

Everyone on the network uses the same idapi32.cfg file stored on a
server. BDE applications depending on defined aliases in this file work.

But we can't edit the file in BDE Admin.

Does anyone have any idea what the "Could Not Find Object" error means?

Thanks.
