FAQ1066C.txt   IDAPI/BDE install errors
Category   :BDE
Platform    :All
Product    :C++Builder  1.x


I run the install and get a message saying that the install is
having trouble locating files associated with the bde or idapi.
I click ok and the install finishes. BCB boots up fine but I
get the error " cannot initialize the Borland Database Engine "
or something similar. This occurs when I launch the BDE 
configuration utility, database desktop or use BCB's
database capabilities in a project. Why is the install failing?


This problem is often caused by InstallShield conflicting with a
drive that is doublespaced using the DoubleSpace disk compression
utility. Solution is to decompress the drive or install to another
