Two BDE apps won't run together
Posted on 2002-05-08
A customer is using our application on a machine that also has another BDE-based application installed. He can run either app on its own, but not both together (the other app falls over with error initializing BDE). Our app is Delphi 5, installed using bundled InstallShield. I am setting private and net directories in my startup code if that matters - is it not possible to have two sessions running with different net dirs?
It seems that our app always stays running and the other one fails when trying to run both at once.
