Installation of app / Delphi 3 failing on Windows 2000

I'm attempting to test an application my company developed in Windows 2000.  We developed the app using Delphi 3 and the BDE 4.51.  When I try installing the application, I get an error stating that the IDSQL32.dll file did not self register.  When the BDE attempts to initialize, it fails.

I attempted to load our development environment onto the 2000 machine to see if I could ge it working that way.  The Delphi installation failed as well.

I was wondering if Delphi 3/BDE 4.51 is compatible with Windows 2000.  Has anyone gotten them to work with W2K, and if so, how?


My thanks....

Hi!

The new thing about Win 2k is that the Administrator can read-only-protect the registry. If it is like this then you should get an error saying something like “writing error in registry...”.
I have tried to run D3 like this and it goes bad and slow and weird errors occurs...

If it is like this then you need to login like Administrator and then reinstall D3...


Good luck!

hi sseaman,

was there a bde installed before?
it may be that there was a bde 5.x installed.
(if not, then try the bde 5.x,
downlaodable at borland)

It got further into the install when I was granted admin access.  I was eventually able to get the app running.  Thanks for the info...
