Frequently Asked Questions
BDE network installation
I want to put the entire BDE DLLs and configuration files on our
LAN. Is this possible and is there an easy way to setup the
clinet machines? I don't know what the registry settings are
for the BDE.
There is a BDE network installation example
that allows a user to setup the BDE and SQL Links on a client
machine without having to install the BDE and SQL Links to the client.
Registry entries are placed into the client machines so that the client
can access a network version of the BDE. Two programs are included:
one which helps configure the .INI file that is necessary to create the
registry entries, and another program that shows how the methods work to
create the registry entries. This is not officially
supported by Borland. It was developed by Developer Support to
help in BDE network installations. NOTE: Using this
example or any method within it, does not violate your Borland
No Nonsense License Agreement. These
exmaples are compiled with Delphi 3.
