I know it is possible to run Delphi 2.0 applications under Windows 3.11 with Win32s installed.

-but how about Borland Database Engine? Can it run under Windows 3.11, or is it dependant of the long filenames?


Best regards

Have you already tried?
Maybe it works if you don't use long filenames.

No, I haven't tried, because I don't have a computer with Windows 3.11 nearby... -so if anyone have some experience with this, please let me know...

My understanding is that only SOME Delphi 2.0 programs will run under Win3.11 with Win32s, in particular (again) my understanding is that BDE32 itself WILL NOT run with Win32s, therefore any Delphi applications that rely on it will not run.  

None of this is objectively verified at this point, I'll try to install BDE32 in my WfWG3.11 installation sometime soon and let you know.

Whether any 32 bit product will underWin32s is a separate issue from whether they will perform adequately. Officially, BDE 32 is not supported under Win 32s. One could devise a hack to make it work, but then it will most likely not perform adequately since all of microsofts 32bit API's are not equal

Too bad... many of my customers still have Windows 3.11...

-then they must upgrade to Win95 :-)
