 Two Idapi's on computer

I have Paradox8 which I program as well as an application I purchased called
Medisoft which also uses Paradox tables.  I had great problems with multiple
locking and .net files on my Peero to Peer until someone pointed out that I
have two Idapi subdirectories with their own net directories which needed to be
set.

I found that Corel installed an Idapi tool in c:/corel/shared/idapi called
bdeadmin  and my Medisoft software installed an Idapi tool in c:/idapi  called
bdecfg.  They each have their own configuration and net directories.

I must not understand Idapi since I assumed that my computer could only have
one or else locking would not occur properly.  Can someone clarify this?

And than you does not arrange unique BDE installed in the
"c:\corel\suit8\Shared\idapi" directory, and in it to get different alias.

Other question if you want to use two basises. But for this purpose it is
not necessary to have two of BDE, it is necessary to install two different
versions Paradox (for example 9 and 8), then using only one of BDE they will
work in parallel.

look in the registry under Borland to find which one is in use ... it's
the one pointed to by the setting CONFIGFILE01. That'll be the default.

The easiest way out is not to use Paradox while you use MediSoft, and
vice versa.

You can have two ADAPI configs stored on a computer, but only one IDAPI
manager will actually be used. By the sound of it, the one in c:\idapi is an
old one (bdeconfig was there for BDE 3 if I remember rightly). BDE4 and
onwards used BDEAdmin. Hopefully, the newer one will be used.

Although they both have their own config, I would have thought that only one
of them is actually used in real world terms - as in both applications are
using the same config file (although how your aliasses are being managed
here is anyones guess).
