  • 2. how to 'open the gate' of a server
    Hello, Excuse me if you consider this subject is misplaced, but i actually did not find a more suitable place. Here is though my problem: My delphi application uses xml documents as configuration files. These files are located on a Windows NT server. The TCP/IP address of this server =, the path where to find MyXMLDoc.xml on the server = c:\MyFolder\MyXMLDoc.xml and MyFolder is a shared folder. In my application code, I use a connect string like \\\MyFolder\MyXMLDoc.xml Here is my problem: this access by code does not allow me to access to the server. Nb: If i'm getting access to the server first via the windows explorer and the windows logging prompt, the problem disappears as the logging 'has already opened the gate'. My question is: how to sign in to the server by code or how to 'open the gate' of my server? Thank's for your help Didier
  • 3. CreateTable problems, any help please??
    Hi people, I am using a a crappy 3rd party database toolbox and want to create a duplicate table using the BDE. I have dropped a TTable (tblBDNew) on the main app and I am copying field defs from tblMT using this... tblBDNew.DatabaseName:=ExtractFilePath(dlgSaveNewDB.Filename); tblBDNew.TableName:=ExtractFilename(dlgSaveNewDB.Filename); tblBDNew.Active:=False; tblBDNew.FieldDefs.Clear; tblBDNew.IndexDefs.Clear; tblMT.Active:=True; // Crappy 3rd-party table for i:=0 to tblMT.FieldCount-1 do // There are 22 fields begin tblBDNew.FieldDefs.AddFieldDef.Name:=tblMT.FieldDefs[i].Name; tblBDNew.FieldDefs.AddFieldDef.DataType:=tblMT.FieldDefs[i].DataType; tblBDNew.FieldDefs.AddFieldDef.Required:=tblMT.FieldDefs[i].Required; tblBDNew.FieldDefs.AddFieldDef.Size:=tblMT.FieldDefs[i].Size; end; for i:=0 to tblMT.IndexCount-1 do // There are 3 indexes begin tblBDNew.IndexDefs.AddIndexDef.Name:=tblMT.IndexDefs[i].Name; tblBDNew.IndexDefs.AddIndexDef.Fields:=tblMT.IndexDefs[i].Fields; tblBDNew.IndexDefs.AddIndexDef.Options:=tblMT.IndexDefs[i].Options; end; tblMT.Active:=False; tblBDNew.CreateTable; All goes fine until the CreateTable and I get a "Capability not supported" error. Can someone please point out where I am going wrong here? I have searched the MIR database and cannot find anything approaching the error I'm getting or any help on what I am doing wrong. Gary C.

I had no idea it was a common problem, but I'm certainly glad to hear that
it is.

May I bother you to instruct me as to how one goes about searching the
newsgroup archives?

This is a known problem, and has been discussed much in threads in this
forum, in borland.public.bde, and in other forums.  Search the newsgroup
archives for "insufficient disk space" or "4G limit" and you'll find
plenty.  There are also suggested work-arounds, and I think one is
a download available from Code Central.

Thank you Bill and Rick.

I found this on "Rick's dBase page" (
has anyone used this fix and care to comment?

BDE "Insufficient disk space" Error Fix
The BDE in all releases earlier than (the version that ships with
dBASE Plus 2.5 and later) and later releases one assumes, has an error that
can occur if you or your users have free disk space on the hard drive that
is an exact increment of 4 gigabytes (i.e., 4, 8, 12, 16 ...). The file includes the .DLL file that solves this issue (it's a "patch"
for the BDE), and also a small program that will load it. Details are in the
file "BDEFix.prg" contained in the .zip file. Note that if you have dBASE
Plus 2.5 or later, this should not be an issue, and you do not need this

I ran into the problem on occasion and just copied some file to the drive to
change the size of the free disk space.  It happened so infrequently, that
the biggest issue I had was to remember what to do when it happened..
