BDE Administrator: 'Object not found' error on startup
BDE Administrator: "Object not found" error on startup:
What does this error mean and how do I solve the problem?
This is a very ambiguous error that means an object (Database
handle, Cusrsor handle, etc) could not be found that is vital to
the BDE program startup. This only happens when ViewMode
includes the virtual ODBC aliases. The solution in this case is
to drop all the DSNs from the ODBC manager, upgrade to version
3.5 of the ODBC manager and add the DSNs back in again. The
later step might not be necessary so try the upgrade first.
