Accessing Paradox database through ODBC on WIndows NT/2000 pro

Accessing Paradox database through ODBC on WIndows NT/2000 pro

Accessing Paradox database through ODBC on WIndows NT/2000 pro

(OP)
Hello

I have the following problem:
after my application opens an ODBC connection to the Paradox database and later closes it, Windows NT/2000 allows me to delete the database files but NOT the empty directory in which the database files were located. Windows gives a Sharing Violation Error when I try to remove the empty directory. It only allows to remove the empty directory after the application closes. On Windows 95/98 everything works fine. The reason I need to remove the directory is that when my program starts it creates a temporary work directory.

Is there a way to remove the empty directory without closing the application?

Please, could you tell me where you get ODBC driver for Paradox from? Thank you very much.

I think it got installed with the Paradox program, but am not sure

I am trying to establish an ODBC connection in Win 95/98, but I'm a little confused on how to do this.  I would appreciate your help.
