Paradox 8 Import and Export not working

Paradox 8 Import and Export not working

Paradox 8 Import and Export not working

The File menu Import and Export options are not working since getting a new computer running Windows XP.  Can anyone suggest how to get them working again?

The Import option doesn't work at all - get message "Don't know how to import for this file type" and the Export option only allows delimited ascii export.  

Thanks, HC


RE: Paradox 8 Import and Export not working

Problem has now been solved - was caused by Paradox being installed on the workstation when Administrator was logged in, not me.

Problem was solved by copying Paradox Registry settings from the Administrator's profile and importing into my profile.  

For solution see  thread 177-682432 16 Oct 03 (a question about the Paradox Project Viewer not opening, but worked for the missing import/export options too). Thanks to footpad for this solution. HC
