I am traying to run a simple app that works on my computer,
but not on another computer.
the program uses single DB table that connected to a DBComboBox
when i try to run the app on another computer i am getting the message:
"An error accurred while attempting initialize the borland database Engine(error $2109)"
do i need an installation on the other computer or maby some files?

You need to install the Borland Database Engine on all computers from where you want to run the application.  It acts as the interface between you application and the tables ...

And you have to create the alias's if you have any after installation ...

Remeber only the BDE needs to be installed, not the Database Desktop etc.

Have fun
