For instance, I have an app that uses paradox on one server, but need to create a SQL SSIS package to move some of that data into a SQL database. When I try to do that I can not see the column names on the paradox tables so can not create the package.
The machine that has SQL and SSIS installed does not have BDE or paradox or any application that uses them (aside from what I'm trying to do)
If I have to have BDE installed, is there a way to only install BDE and not the app that uses it? Basically we had to move the app because it was conflicting with other things on that server.
