Well, little more information might help?
What exactly happens when you try to load the form? Does an error
dialog appear? If so, what does it say?
How are you trying to load it? From a folder, via File|Open|Form, or
from another form, with some objectPAL code?
It might sound *terribly* obvious, but are you going into the form via
the 'view' option in the dialog box, or by double clicking on an icon
in a folder window? If so, perhaps clicking on the 'design' button or
using the 'Design ...' on the object inspector menu on the folder icon
might open it up in a design window.
Failing that, can you see if the form is loading on another machine
with Paradox 4 Windows installed on it. Knowing what a memory-glut p4w
is, perhaps you don't have sufficient memory to open the form due to
it's size (any largish Bitmaps on the form?). If so, try opening it
without any other forms/tables and windows applications active at the
These may sound horribly obvious, but without a little more
information on what exactly is happening, it's hard to be more
[If you need someone to see if the form will open on another machine
running p4w, and don't have one local, then if you can uuencode the
binary and mail it to me, I'll have a go and see if I can help.]
