Hi,

I am using Delphi 7 in my application with paradox tables. The table is accessed using the native paradox driver. I have defined a alias in BDE.

The problem is on a customer's machine. After restarting the machine when he runs my application the application hangs when the following code is called

try
  table.open;
except
  // logging the error
end;

My application is not in the startup folder. The application's caption displays "Not responding" and he has to press CTL-ALT-DEL to kill it. Now when he clicks on the shortcut again, it works fine. It seems like the BDE gives this problem only the first time. The problem is not repeatable every time but happens very frequently when he re-starts his machine. Any ideas?
