I have installed the Paradox7 (CD-Rom kit) to my Win95 OSR2 system (fresh installed). The problem is: when I try to run the Paradox Experts I receive an error message ("An error triggered in the 'nrecords' method on an object of TCursor type" and netx "TCursor not opened'")and the Experts is not run. Some mounths before (after first 3-4 installations) the Experts was runing without problem. How can I solve this ?

Now I have found the reason: the tables from “EXPERTS” directory are older (Paradox 4.x version) and don’t recognize long directory name. Exists a “Table Lookup” between two tables (ExpFM and ExpFC) based on alias WORK that return a long directory name if PARADOX7 is installed in C:\Program Files\Paradox7.

Finally I installed Paradox 7 in c:\Pdox7 directory and everything is OK.

I have experienced this problem before and after consultation with Paradox helpdesk, put it down to Paradox not coping with later releases of Windows 95, namely OSR2
There is a patch available from Paradox which solves this problem. Unfortunatly, since this problem occurred many moons ago, I am unable to remember where on the Internet I obtained the patch.
Therefore either search the Corel/Paradox websites for it or alternativly E-mail me and I'll send you it.
