Possible BDE and ADO Data Control incompatabilities
2003-10-15 06:38:05 PM
I have created an installation that needs amongst its Merge Modules one for
the BDE and one for ADO Data Control 6.0. I am using Installshield Developer
8 but have experienced specific problems when including these two under
Windows 2000. If I tell the installer to use Windows installer 2.0 I have no
problems. If I use the 1.2 version, everything seems ok during the install,
logged on as an Administrator. However if I then log on as a standard user
the install restarts immediately on logging in. I need one install for all
operating systems and, as supply to user with NT+service pack 5, I must use
Windows Installer 1.2.
I have been in touch with Installshield, who after some deliberation, have
suggested the following
"This behaviour may be occurring because of compatibility issue as BDE and
ADO Data Control may be using the same ODBC Driver at the back end and ODBC
seems to have a limitation on this. "
They suggest I contact Borland and Microsoft for further help.
Has anybody out there had an experience of this kind and therefore can help
