Paradox 7: Could not initialize BDE; Insufficient shared memory available. ERROR
Posted on 2007-11-26
I installed the borland database Engine, version 5.01. I then installed Paradox 7. When I click the icon to start Paradox, I get the Paradox splash screen for about half a second, then I get this error:
Could not initialize BDE; Insufficient shared memory available
When I clear the error I am back to my desktop with no Paradox running.
I am running Vista. Now, I had this running on Vista from February until last week. Then, my system crashed. I reinstalled Vista but now I can't get Paradox working. I had this same problem 9 months ago when I installed Vista, but I cannot remember what I did to fix this.
I have tried going into the BDE ADMIN and adding to the SHAREDMEMSIZE under INIT in the SYSTEM configuration. Any suggestions?
