Default BDE Installation Kit


I would like to build an installation kit to install BDE on any computer. Can I make this without using Install Shield Express?

Default RE: BDE Installation Kit

Yes, you can install BDE without the use of InstallShield.
(Even thu it's easy'er to do it with InstallShield Express)

First you need all of the files located in the directory
of the bde. (There is no needed files from the system dir of windows)

Second you need som registry entrys. Check under Software / Borland / BDE or something like that. I'm sorry that I can't tell you the links as I don't have them here with me.
But search for BDE and you'll find them.

Extract the registry entrys and save them to disk. There in the saved registryfiles you have to enter the path to the librarys on the new computer and exe files of the BDE.

On the new computer, just run the BDE.reg file you just have saved and copy the BDE files to the very same folder as it is written in the bde.reg file.

And that's it.

Hope this helps you!

I'm sorry if it's a little bit messy as I did take it from my memory.

Good Luck!
