BDE eXpress

BDE eXpress Windows 7

Providing the BDE interface for other applications under Windows 7

The Borland Database Engine (shortly BDE ) is an interface of the company Firma Borland Inc. to access databases. It provides the access to well known databases as dBase and Paradox.

A lot of well known programs are using the BDE. Normally the user don'nt know that he's using the BDE. But if he try to run the same program unter Windows Vista appears the message " Error initializing the Borland Database Engine". At this moment it is obvious that not the software is bad but there's no compatible instalation of the BDE for Windows Vista present.

With "Windows Vista" Microsoft introduced a lot of changes egarding the file acces and rights of users and programs. Per default the original BDE is'nt made for Windows 7 and Vista specific environment conditions. This does'nt mean that BDE is'nt a professionel database system. Well installed the BDE runs on Windos 7/Vista as confidential as ever on other Windows systems.

What is "BDE eXpress"?

"BDE eXpress Windows 7 / Vista" itself is'nt a database. It provides the BDE interface for other applications under Windows 7 resp. Vista.

The setup of "BDE eXpress" installs a special adapted version of the BDE for applications that access to Paradox and dBase databases with the BDE under Windows 7 or Vista.

The "BDE eXpress Manager"

allows to activate and deactivate "BDE Express Windows 7 / Vista" restauration of the initial state before install "BDE Express" contains "BDE Express Backup" - an integrated Data backup toolsto store and restore Paradox- and dBase data stocks allows automatical upgrade of whole data stocks into the Vista-compatible format Paradox 7 provides then Original "Borland BDE Administration" in Windows-7/Vista-compatible mode Support of User Aliasnames
