Borland Database Engine (BDE)
NOTE: This page does NOT apply to Insider TA versions 6.1 or greater.
If you do, then exit this page now.
Insider TA Professional and Standard (versions 4.0 through 6.0 only) use the Borland Database
Engine, or BDE. The BDE is automatically installed by the Insider TA
setup CD. But in the event your BDE installation gets corrupted, you
do no need to re-install from the Insider TA CD.
Download and run the following setup file. It will install the latest
BDE Version 5.2 and a special BDE Information Utility. The BDE Information
Utility displays the current BDE version, current BDE Config File, and current
BDE version. The BDE Information Utility can also be used to test your
system to be sure that the BDE is installed and configured properly.
When installing, proceed with all the default settings.
Attention Vista users: You will need to configure the BDE to work with Vista. Click here for instructions.
We are grateful to David R. Robinson at IBInstall.Defined.net (a retired web site, sad to say)
for developing this convenient tool for users of the Borland Database Engine!
