Default Installing a database application...

I have made my first DataBase application using BDE engine with a Paradox table. On my computer it works fine.

I want to send it to some friends, but I just cant get it installed and working there.
(1) How do I install the BDE engine on another computer?
(2) Do I have to add my database file to this engine when I let the program be installed? I read something about having to add an alias to the BDE engine?

If somebody could help me out it would make me very happy....

HI

The quickest and easiset way to do this is using the Install shield that comes with the Delphi package. You can customize the install to your needs, but i guess the BDE is your main concern. you can use the install shield just to install the BDe and ship the database files seperately...

It's easier than you think...
good luck

1) You can use the InstallShield Express that comes with Delphi to create a BDE installation or use a CD with the BDE setup files to install the BDE.

2) If you have tables associated with the EXE, you will have to include them.

That should do it. If you use this in a network, there is a file, pdoxusr.net, which must be common to all users. Use BDEADMIN.EXE on each PC to point to a common location for that file.
