I have a very upset client. :-0
I am installing the BDE from Delphi 4 Pro (update pak 2) with an application I created that used Paradox tables. I am using the Installshield Express that comes with Delphi 4.
I have never had a problem installing the BDE, but this client has WordPerfect Office Suite 8 installed on his machine. The first time he ran setup, my program would not run -- with the error: Interface mismatch
So I had him check if he had an older version of the BDE installed. Yes...he has version 4 that must have been installed by Corel.
Second setup with no TSR's running, etc. we get error: Merging the configuration file has failed
OK. I read all the FAQ's at Borland so I make a special build with the BDE and have him install it to the same directory as listed in the registry for the BDE -- which (oddly) has a path using "idapinew.cfg" instead of "idapi32.cfg"
No. Now he gets:
General file transfer error
Please check your target location and try again
HELP! Has anyone encountered this? Anyone know a fix? I am already refunding the client's money.
Thanks in advance.
