I have successfully installed BDE on Windows 7 64 bit, by installing to C:\BDE instead of C:\program files (x86)\BDE. I am having trouble getting this to run properly on Windows 2008 64 Bit Citrix server. When I add my database and try to connect to it it get this error
Cannot load an IDAPI service library File: SQLORA8.dll.
I know this is very old software, but I have successfully installed on Windows 7. Does anyone have any idea how to get this to run on Windows Server 2008 R2?

- what is BDE and does it have any dependencies (other software)?
- is sqlora8.dll present in c:\bde or one of it's subfolders?
- if yes -> check whether c:\bde\<path to sqlora8.dll> is in you PATH
- did you install in c:\program files\bde under Windows 7 and if so why did you change now?
