Paradox 7.0 w3.x runtime problem

I am using Paradox 7 for Windows95/NT and the Paradox 7 Runtime. Both work
fine until I use the Win 3.x runtime with delivered forms. I get the error
message

"This delivered form was compiled with an earlier version of Paradox. You
must recompile the source form with the current version"

Since the forms are compiled with Paradox 7 and the Win95 runtime works well
with the same delivered forms, I don't see where the problem is.

Is there anybody who can help?

When you compile a form in the 95 compliant versions of Paradox - Win95 - they save important information obout the form's environment with it. Things such as the current operating system, BDE (Borland DataBase Engine) version, etc.  Since the form was compiled in 95 - it will assume that's the operating system it was designed for.  If you compile an application in Win 3.x it will run in both 3.x & Win95 - but not the other way around.  

Once you compile a form in Win95 using P7, you will not be able to use it in Win 3.x - even if you initially created the form on a 3.1 machine.  The only way around this is to re-compile the form on a 3.x machine (and there's no gaurantee that will work).  If you have a question, add a comment.

Good luck!

Thanks,

Think I have to buy P7 for Win3.x now and try your solution. It seems quite a step to buy a complete package for a solution which might not work. On the other hand, I wouldn't leave my precious formdesigns out in the open when I distribute my application to others.
