 Error: IDAPI initialization,paradox version 5.
Help,

Could someone tell me what to do.
When i try to launch paradox 5.0 from my windows environment i am getting
a "couldn't initialized IDAPI" error.  I have it on my pentium computer
with windows for workgroups 3.1.

Thanks.

If Paradox crashed, chances are the IDAPI DLLs are still in memory due to
the abnormal termination.  On a subsequent start, they can't be
initialized, and thus an error message.  You'll need to reboot, or
download a program off of Borland's ftp site (perhaps on the web site)
and/or compuserve called savepdox.  savepdox.exe will release the IDAPI
dlls from memory after a crash.

If Paradox didn't crash, sounds like you need to specify a net dir in the
IDAPI configuration program for the paradox driver.

I've found that exiting Windows is sufficient; 'course, I'm still on 3.1,
and don't know if that's even possible in Windows95 (i.e. is exiting windows95 =
reboot?)

This usually occurs after a BDE crash

Exit windows and restart - should be OK!

This isn't the only problem you will have with wfw 3.11

Stick to smartdrv & don't use 32bit file access.
