...on a Windows95 assembled PC, Delphi 2 Developer.
when trying to open a table from DatabaseDesktop, everything goes fine, but it's impossible to accomplish the task both from Delphi (design time and run time), and from DatabaseExplorer.
The opening fails with this error message:
Database Engine Error
"Invalid file name"
BDE Error: 9987 / [$27][ $3]
Invalid file name
The error keeps occurring after complete reinstallation of the OS and of the Delphi package.
So my question(s):
1. could you explain what is the meaning of that error message (or at least point me to the right docs)?
2. and, what do you think the cause may be?
BTW, i just bet the mother board is buggy, which doesn't make my nights easier... ;)
