Problem: If you have installed and are running InterBase version 5.0 on Windows NT/95 and then install a BDE based product will over write the IB v5 gds32.dll with the IB v4.2.1 gds32.dll. Solution: Until the BDE changes their installation programs to locate our software in its new registry location this will continue to happen. Default Registry Entries: v4.21: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Borland InterBase v5.00: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE InterBase Corp InterBase To avoid this problem you must: a) Safely shut down the InterBase server. b) Rename the gds32.dll to gds32.500 (or something you like) c) Install the BDE based product d) Rename the gds32.dll to gds32.421 (or something you like) e) Rename gds32.500 to gds32.dll f) Restart the InterBase server.
