Does anybody know what the reason for a BDE Error $2501 is and how to get around it?

It seems to occur whenever two applications (one is a DLL) use the same alias...

(BDE 5.11, Windows 2000, Delphi 3 (sorry))

hi dgn,

9473 : $2501 : Insufficient memory for this operation.

look at bde-admin|configuration-tab|System|Init
and adjust the entries memsize and/or sharedmemsize to a higher value

Category    :Database (Miscellaneous)
Platform    :All
Product     :BDE

Question:
"Insufficient memory to complete operation" error when
attempting various BDE / Database operations: What is wrong?

Answer:
More than likely, you have hit one of the BDE fixed, but
configurable, memory limitations. Use the BDE Administrator
(BDEADMIN.EXE) to increase MEMSIZE and SHAREDMEMSIZE settings.
You might also want to re-evaluate the application hitting this
limitation because it is likely that the application is a
serious resource hit on the machine.  Not using auto-create
forms and only opening tables and queries when needed can free
up resources.

Hello Meikl,

thanks for your answere, the suggestion worked just fine.

BTW: I'm just sitting in 'Konstanz, Germany', together with Roadrunner. We are working on a Palm III project (stock management with barcode scanning). Roadrunner likes me to tell you that he has found a way to write conduits in delphi at last...
