Category   :BDE
Platform    :All
Product    :C++Builder  1.x


I have more than one installation of the Borland Database
 Engine and I am having troubles configuring the BDE to work 
with either Delphi, C++Builder, or IntraBuilder.


Run regedit to see what your current path is for your DLLPATH 
under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\Borland\Database Engine.  
There should be one and only one path for this key.  If 
there is more than one, it will result in problems.  
Furthermore, the CONFIGFILE01 key should point to your latest 
config file.

One way to resolve problems arising from 
conflicting installations of the database  engine is to 
reinstall the version of Borland's compiler or 
tool (either Delphi, Intrabuilder, or C++Builder) that has the 
latest version of the BDE. Then edit the DLLPATH in the registry so 
that it uses the default that the installation program gave.
This works because the latest version of the BDE is backward 
compatible which means that it will run applications written 
with previous versions of the BDE.
