If you choose to download program without BDE, then you download here the BDE (5.11) program too. Thus your computer will be suitable to run other programs what access datas. By all these you can uninstall it (It don't create icon to Start menu) and you can choose server - client install as follows:

  • Use server mode

    Default the installer create C:\Program Files\Borland\Common Files\BDE directory and copy files to it. We can install BDE to network drive, if you change default directory name. You must map network drive on all computers using BDE (1 computer install server BDE, and others install client BDE, see below).

  • Use client mode

    If you install BDE server to one computer, then you have to run only this executable file on other workstation. The installer program create uninstall file in Program Files\BDE directory automatic. You have to browse another folder (what you select destination directory, see above) on install.
