Hi all,
Can the Delphi3 and the programs which written by Delphi3 work with FAT32? No have any problem? Where have some documents talk about this?

I only found this from Borland
Windows 95 version 950B and Windows 98 have a file system called FAT32.
BDE Versions prior to version 3.5 will not work with this file system. BDE Versions after version 3.5 have no problem with FAT32. This document
discusses how to make BDE version 3.5 work with FAT32.

Thanks, SupWang

there wont be any documents about it becuase fat32 is just a  filesystem , your delphi apps will run fine dont worry :-)i only use fat32 and no problems or never heard of anyone having a problem of this sort .

to be more presise the BDE that shipped with Delphi 2 did not properly handle long file names on FAT32 systems (actually MS changed how FAT32 handled long filenames so it is not a BDE bug).there is no other error like this in delphi as long as you have newer bde than the one from d2.
