Re:Paradox Tables on CD ROM

The PARADOX.LCK file is there for compatibility with older DOS versions of
Paradox, however, I do not know if the BDE will complain if you delete it.
To set the private directory in code see the PrivateDir property of TSession
in the on-line help. The code is:

Session.PrivateDire := 'c:\foo\myprivatedir';
