I am running Windows 2000, and I have Delphi 1, 2, 3 and 5 installed on this
It has been a few months since I've used Delphi 1, but now when I launch
Delphi 1, I get the following message :
Exception EDatabaseError in
module COMPLIB.DCL at 000A:1246
An error occurred while attempting to initialize Borland Database Engine
Which is followed by :
Cannot open component library
Which means hat no components appear in the component palette when Delphi finishes coming up.
The other versions of Delphi run just fine.
What may have gone wrong with Delphi 1? I copied a backup of my COMPLIB.DCL from a backup PC to my primary PC, but that does not solve the problem. I know there isn't anything wrong with the component library, therefore.
When I launch the Delphi 1 BDE Config utility, I get the error "System configuration file not found".
When I launch Delphi 1's Database Desktop, I get "Private directory is invalid or undefined. Using tempoary directory instead." then followed by this error "Could not initialize IDAPI"
