Registry entry for Paradox Net Folder

Registry entry for Paradox Net Folder

thread101-1447703: Vista - Network initialization Failed

I am now using C++Builder 6 Pro and have finally figured out the InstallShield usage.

It has a Registry entry and I have tested using it and it works great.

I set the DATABASEDIR in the General Information section to [CommonAppDataFolder]\MyProg. Database files are then installed to that directory. I also use DATABASEDIR in the Registry Setting to locate the Database with the program. In the program I read the Registry and set it as the Database for my database components. Works great.

Lee - you suggested setting the NetDir in the Registry.

I am not sure what I should use for the Paradox Driver - <Driver Name> - that you suggested??

In the InstallShield Registry Setting I can select the Registry Root etc and add the keys needed by Right Clicking the Root and the following keys that are added until the structure is there.

Should i just use the word 'Paradox' for the <Driver Name>? Or where can I find out what the Paradox Driver is?

Any help is appreciated.


RE: Registry entry for Paradox Net Folder

OK - Have figured it all out.

C++Builder 6 is 10 year old but with trial and error have set up the InstallShield to do a full installation of the database and folders. Though the folder options in the InstallShield are a bit out of date for what is used today they are still usable enough to meet my needs.
