I have made a program that uses the BDE of Delphi 2.0 on an Windows 95 machine.

Now I want to use the same BDE at my work. I used the BDE from the CD of Delphi 2.0

I have installed the files. But when I start my program the BDE gives an message:

"An error occured while attempting to initialize the Borland Database Engine (error $2108)."

What must I do to let it work ???

I didn't use Install Shield.

How can I created the right Registry entries ??

I have used the registry to set the path were the databases of my program are placed.
But not for the BDE, I thought the BDE would do it.

Export a key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Database Engine
and insert to registry on second computer. You must also copy catalog BDE
