I am currently creating a very simple software installation program.  How can I install the BDE without using Borlands installation software ?

Your installation program will be not so simple in that case:

You have to find each and every registry entry that the BDE
needs. And you need to copy each file to the right place.

The simplest way is to create a "dummy" instalation using
installshield that installs "hello world" (or project1.exe...)and the BDE.

Your simple setup can then delete "hello world" and configure the
BDE.
