InstallShield, BDE, and MAXFILEHANDLES problem
I'm using InstallShield, and I should change the BDE MAXFILEHANDLES param, during installation. I'v figured out, that the MAXFILEHANDLES stored in IDAPI32.CFG of the BDE directory. It also stored in the registry. I can change, and replace the InstallShield default IDAPI32.CFG with BdeAdmin, wich is fine, when the user do not have BDE installed on. But if BDE already exists in the computer, and MAXFILEHANDLES parameter is set, lower than it sould be, the installation do not chane it. I'v tried give new registry values, but it changes the value only in the registry, and in the BDE configuration has no effect. If you have any idea or expirience in this particular question, I'd appriciate your help!
Have a good day!
