How to get BDE to work on a terminal server.

The Solution

As with getting most legacy applications to work correctly on Terminal Server, getting the BDE to work is a matter of rights. Once rights are setup, you can then configure the BDE.

There are many ways to solve these specific rights errors. One easy solution if you trust the users using the terminal server is to add them as administrators to the terminal server. An elegant way to accomplish this if you're using Active Directory is to add your user group to the Administrators group of the terminal server.

Add users to admins of terminal server.
