We have encountered no problems installing the BDE and running our apps on Vista.

"If you are using BDE on Windows Vista, you will need to reconfigure BDE so that it does not attempt to write files to the C:\<root> directory. To do this, log on as an administrator and run BDEAdmin.exe, located at Program Files\Common Files\Borland Shared\BDE. Under Native, click PARADOX, and change NET DIR to point to a location other than the root directory. A suggested target is C:\Users\Public\Documents\RAD STUDIO. "

This posting suggests that only Vista Enterprise and Ultimate versions support BDE

Ah.  Sorry.  That's BDE as in Bitlocker Drive Encryption.  An entirely different kettle of halibuts.
