I seem to have lost the ability to create aliases with data base desktop (All I use is D1 - my shop uses Win 3.11)
When I try to run through an aias creation, I get the following actions/results:
Alias -> new alias -> newaliasname/Standard/some path -> keep new -> OK -> <Dialog box> OK to save Public Aliases
to c:\idapi\idapi.cfg? -> Yes ->
<Dialog box> Cannot find Engine configuration. -> OK
C:\idapi\idapi.cfg is there, and I have certainly created aliase earlier. But, after working with other things for awhile, and coming back, I get this "Cannot find Engine configuration" complaint, and the cfg file is not rewritten.
Database Engine Configuration doesn't seem to save anything either - aliases created in DBEC don't cause any complaints, they just don't get written to the table.
