Help with InstallShield to change BDE alias path to correct directory
Posted on 2003-03-14
Hello Delphi Experts,
When I install my Delphi database program on another computer, the installation routine changes the PATH parameter on the database alias in the BDE Administrator to the installation directory
(C:\ProgramFiles\AAA\Project2) instead of the directory where I put the database files (C:\ProgramFiles\AAA\Project2\Data). I have looked and clicked everything I can think of to try to tell InstallShield to use the \Data directory when it changes the DB alias, but can't figure out how to do it.
If I copy the files up from the \Project2\Data directory into the \Project2 directory, the program works just fine. But I wanted them in a seperate directory to make database backups easier.
Thank you for your insight into this situation.
