    BDE Enterprise installer and Windows 10

    Serge_G : It's all about not taking so many risks, they are an insurance firm. I can understand where they are coming from and there have been some initial conversion issues that caused data corruption, so now they are more cautious

    Lars, sorry I have trawled my hard drive and I have tried the PS script you suggested and have tried using the Everything app searching for BDE*.ms* and nothing, nada ! Oh, I think you are right about FireDAC, but the customer is a bit adverse to it at the moment and wants to spread the "risk" out a bit and I can't blame them to be honest.

    BDE Enterprise installer and Windows 10

    I am sorry to ask about the BDE in 2020, but we are trying to move a client from Windows7 to Windows10 and then eventually from the BDE to FireDAC I installed BDE v5.01 onto my machine using the installer ( 30868_bde_installer_for_rad_studio_delphi_c_builder_10.3_rio ) and apparently in order to give the client the ability to insall the BDE I must find BDE_ENT.msi on my machine ( in %programdata% ) and then give them that file to install. However, I cannot find BDE_ENT.msi anywhere on my system. I have even gone into %programdata% and manually searched for it and it is nowhere to be found. So, I guess my questions are: Do Embarcadero still sell or make available for download or to purchase the Enterprise version for clients ( not developers ) with a proper installer ? Can a proper installer be obtained from anywhere ? If the customer already has a licensed version of the BDE Enterprise (v4) are they allowed to get an updated installer ? Will this work on Window 10 (v4 or the latest version) ? What is the latest version of the client side of the BDE ? Sorry for all of these questions, but like I said earlier I am trying to move a client from Windows7 to Windows10 and then eventually from the BDE to FireDAC. So eventually they will be on FireDAC, but for now we need to get the BDE working.
  4. I am sorry, but I installed BDE v5.01 onto my machine using the installer ( 30868_bde_installer_for_rad_studio_delphi_c_builder_10.3_rio ) and I cannot find BDE_ENT.msi anywhere and I have Everything and still cannot find it. I have even gone into %programdata% and manually searched for it and it is nowhere to be found. Also the download link you provided, when the files are unzipped they are just folders to be copied somewhere ( I think ), but the instructions are not instructions I would want to give to an average user as they are far too complex.
