BDE Install fails on some users machines, why?

BDE Install fails on some users machines, why?

Post by Gerald Nu » Wed, 07 Feb 1996 04:00:00

Twice now users have tried to install the BDE on their respective
machines only to have the BDE install program fail with the message below:

"Cannot execute install.exe (or one of its components)
Check to insure that all components (instxtra.pak) are available"

Yet I have installed the BDE on a dozen other machines, from the same
files, and it works fine.  Unfortunately the two machines it fails on are
not anywhere near me, geographically speaking, so there is no way I can do
a detailed analysis of why the BDE installation fails.  As I said, it has
so far failed on only these two machines and not any others.  Anybody have
any idea why the BDE is failing to install?

It sounds like it is missing a DLL, but which one?  All of the install
files are present as far as I can determine and the user has plenty of
hard drive space for the install.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have tried to install BDE in a LAN environment without success.
This machine gets its Win31 from LAN and the user cannot write to LAN's
windows and windows/system directories. The user has a small local win31

How can I install BDE in that environment? This is very important for me.

1. Problem installing BDE on another machine

Hi guys,

I developed a Delphi application using Access 97 tables via BDE. I made an
full installation kit by InstallShield and take my application to another
computer. I installed it successfully, but when I started my application, I
got the following message (sorry in french) : "impossible de charger une
bibliotheque de service IDDA3532.dll"

This message could be translated (I think ) by "unable to load a service
library IDDA3532.dll"

This file does really exist on the mentionned computer.

I hope someone can help me
