Hi asi,

In the beginning, I had some problems too, but here is my solution, hope it is yours! (I always install my program with the full Bde, not partially)

1. Go to Specify Components, Groups and files
   - fill in a new Group Name (e.g. Data Files)
   - fill in the destination directory (e.g. <INSTALLDIR>\Data)
2. Add the data files in this new group.

Problems, just ask, but be specific because it's already so complicated with those groups and components, ...

If you like an example file, just ask.

Have fun,
c.u. ZifNab;

if u have an example file it would be great !
how does the InstallShield know about the connection between the alias name and the group (Data File) that u mention.

Hi asi,

Sorry about the incompleteness, here is the information for connecting alias name with Data File :

Select InstallShield, General Options
 - Select BDE and push Settings button;
 - Push Next
 - Fill in an Aliase name e.g. KD
 - Push Next
 - Push Next
 - Choose an Aliase name from the combo-box (e.g. KD)
   - Fill in a path : <INSTALLDIR>\Data
   - Fill in Type   : e.g. Paradox
   - Give Parameters if needed
 - Push Next
 -> Finish

To where do I have to send an example?
