    Re: How could I check the former bde/odbc?

    Hi,
    The information that you put in the alias section is simply passed to the AddAlias function in IDAPINST.DLL. You should look in the ISAPINST.DLL documentation for information on the AddAlias function. You could also try looking in the BDE API Help file for information on the DbiAddAlais() function. Sorry, but I really do not know much about the AddAlias function in IDAPINST.DLL.

    Hi Mark,

    thanks for your help. I just read the
    “How To Distribute Borland Database Engine With Your Setup”. I tried to use the InstallBDE.ini.
    But every time I want to add an alias I get the error message: 'Add Alias failed'

    My settings for the Aliases are:

    [Aliases]
    Alias1=testsys, STANDARD, DEFAULTDRIVER: DBASE; ENABLE BCD: FALSE; PATH: c:\temp\datasys

    So what's wrong?

    Thanks
    Michael

    Hi,
    Try reading these two Knowledge base Articles:
    “How To Distribute Borland Database Engine With Your Setup” http://www.indigorose.com/kb/IRKB-SF5-000004.pdf
    “Installing And Configuring ODBC” http://www.indigorose.com/kb/IRKB-SF5-000009.pdf
    They should answer most of your questions, if you have any more after reading them please post them.

    How could I check the former bde/odbc?

    Hi,
    I'm a new user of setup-factory and i had to install odbc and bde. This works good on machine where none of them are installed.
    But if they are installed before from another machine I always get a mistake if I want to start my installed programm.
    • So how could I check if a former odbc/bde is installed and
    • How could I add another odbc-driver and another bde-alias?
    • How could I check the former bde/odbc if they are the right ones and if not - install the new one?


    Thanks
    Michael
