1. The Future of Paradox Blog

If you have an existing Paradox system you can keep using it but you'll need to skip the Vista operating system and either stick with Windows XP or move to Windows 7. Because better tools exist, you may very well want to put a plan together now for converting to another development tool or at least understand what the future is likely to hold. If you're a power-user or researcher working with data, stick with Paradox.

Could not open Paradox.net
One of our users got a new pc this week.  He has some Excel pivot tables that are reading data from Paradox tables via an odbc connection.  Every time he tries to refresh the data, he gets an error message saying 'Could not open Paradox.net'.  From what I understand, Paradox.net is the DOS version of pdoxusrs.net.  I had the user send me the Excel file and the table it was trying to access and it worked fine for me after setting up the alias that he initially used when he built this pivot table. I had the user search his hard drive for a file called Paradox.net, and one did not exist.  Does anyone have any idea why it would be looking for this file? Thanks, Doug

    Unable to start Application Workshop
    I hope there are still some eyes out there with PfD 4.5 knowledge. I am writing the successor to a Paradox system. Part of the reverse engineering process is understanding the old system. Thanks to Amazon, I've got the "Using Paradox 4.5 for DOS" book from Queue (1993) and a few others (including the "What Every Paradox 4.5 Programmer Should Know," by our host here.) I'm trying to get under the hood of the app, but have been stopped at the door. When I try to get into the Application Editor, I get the error message "Can't find required script." This happens immediately after clicking the system menu --> utilities --> workshop.  Any thoughts? [Edit] I should mention that it is entirely possible that the original developer disabled this functionality to keep the curious (non-technical) staff from tinkering with critical scripts.

    Findfirst File extensions oddity?
    Can anybody please explain why Findfirst, when searching for *.htm will also find .html etc. and what please is the workaround. Was this designed for dos only when there were only three letters?, The real problem is that many web sites include duplicate files one for each of the extensions. Passing the output of Findfirst to a Stringlist with duplicates trapped will not of course solve the problem., Hopefully thanks., Don Roll Eyes

    PARADOX 4.5 for DOS on WIN2K
    Sadily we are still running a legacy application that requires PDOX45. Honestly I don't mind since I really love this version. Here is the hitch: I upgraded a workstation to WIN 2000 and now I can't get pdox to run. My command line is f:\pdox45\paradox.exe -extk 16000 -net f:\system\pdox45\ Which has worked just fine for all other W95, W98 and WMe machines but under W2K I get the following error message: Can't Start PARADOX: no directory specified for PDOXUSRS.NET, , Any ideas?
