FAQ138B.txt - BDE network installation
Category :Install Issues
I want to put the entire BDE DLLs and configuration files on our LAN. Is this possible and is there an easy way to setup the client machines? I don't know what the registry settings are for the BDE.
www.borland.com/devsupport/bde/files/bdenet.zip has a BDE network installation example that allows a user to setup the BDE and SQL Links on a client machine without having to install the BDE and SQL Links to the client. Registry entries are placed into the client machines so that the client can access a network version of the BDE. Two programs are included: one which helps configure the .INI file that is necessary to create the registry entries, and another program that shows how the methods work to create the registry entries.
This is not officially supported by Borland. It was developed by Developer Support to help in BDE network installations.
