Insufficient Disk Space with BDE

I have downloaded the patch to correct the "Insufficient Disk Space" error when using the BDE. Two files are in the patch; Fix4GBug.dll and FixBDE4GbBug.pas but I don't know what I am supposed to do with those files.

How do I use those files to correct the "Insufficient Disk Space" bug?

Thank You...

AFAIR, just add the FixBDE4GbBug.pas in the uses clause of the dpr,
above any unit that uses the BDE. (actually, as first unit after Memory
manager if you use any.).

Mel,

Thank you for your reply. I am not familiar with the 'uses clause'. Is that something in Delphi? I am using C++ Builder.

Yes, delphi.
this FixBDE4GbBug.pas is a Delphi thing anyway...
I don't know what you should do in c++ builder for that case, as I am
not familiar with it.
Sorry.

You use the far better binary patch that was made available in the Paradox
news group: No need to recompile code and it works with any BDE dependant
application regardless of the development environment.

Seriously, do not bother with these groups anymore for BDE or Paradox (or
even dBase) support - you are wasting your time. These guys are nothing like
the Borland programmers of the Turbo Pascal/Turbo C days - it is like chalk
and cheese - a real shame IMO.

Paradox Newsgroup?

I'll take a look.

Thanks for the tip.

Here is a link to the latest version of the BDE (5.2.0.2) with the 2Gb/4Gb
Binary Patch already applied plus manifest files and other things.
http://www.all2ezy.com/pages/developer_downloads.php

Open the Readme file for further information. This has now been downloaded
by thousands upon thousands of users, in particular the Paradox Community.
Put simply, it allows for a set and forget BDE installation even on the
Windows 8.x OS (ie. it is completely UAC friendly). The reason for its
creation was to allow an easy install of the BDE with the Paradox For
Windows Runtime.

One thing to note is that applications which disobey the rules and try and
read the BDE settings directly from the registry rather than using the BDE
API (or OPAL equivalents) are going to be disappointed as they should be
reading the cfg file via the API. But, follow the IDAPI/ODAPI/BDE rules that
have been in place since about approx 1992 - and you will have ZERO issues.

It has not been fully tested on Windows 10 but we are not expecting any
problems.
Leslie.

Not sure what is happening here but in my newsgroup reader I am seeing my
post multiple times. I can accept that I might have accidentally sent it
twice but not the 6 or so times that I can see. Weird.

Note that I am being very careful to make sure that this gets sent once
only - lets hope that is what happens (and sorry in advance if not).
