BDE in local network

Does somebody know if it is possible to perform network installation of
BDE?
I'd like to place BDE files on the network and allow its usage for
Delphi clients,
without copying any files into local disk drives.
Thanks in advance for any help,

Re:BDE in local network


Yes, you absolutely can do this.  I use D3 with Win 95 and have some
applications that do exactly that. I have BDE files installed on the server,
my exe files in another directory in server.
2 things to watch out for:
1) make sure that all users have access to the same network control file
2) you have to make entries into the windows registry so it knows where to
find the BDE files. (each machine running your program)
