RE: Windows 10
I was thinking that maybe, using the two-pane process details, we could find an inherent difference between what loads/run underneath, in 8 and 11, or some related dll or overlay that gets called differently it's mostly techno-babble, but one time, it led me to a corrupted folder, that led us to a piece of malware.. once we ID'd it on one machine, we recognized it instantly on another if you can see how it processes that report in 8, then in 11, then 8 again, maybe that will expose what 11 is doing

Migrating to Windows Server2008
Been using paradox ocx as web server for over 10 yrs on server with windows server 2003(?).  Recently purchased new server.  Have Windows Server 2008 on it.  Migrated entire data and web info from old to new.  Cleaned up and tested all web pages on new server using localhost.  localhost:8081 hits paradox ocx and creates web pages perfectly. Now trying to webname:8081 to hit paradox and not working.  Probably bad description, I'm no good on the server side. Any ideas.  Why does local host see the 8081 port in the ocx but not the webname:8081? Help

makeDir(varname) - or, how to convert var to const
I need to use a (string) variable as a parameter for makeDir, but it only accepts a constant as a parameter. For example: n = 1 while n <4    stVar = "dirname" + string(n)    makeDir(stVar)     n = n + 1 endwhile How to get around this...?   Thanks! -pt

Windows 10
Hi there For those of you still running Paradox I can tell you, that it runs very well on Windows 10. No errors and very fast and stable. No problems with BDE either. Only problem we have is using PDFCreator printing PDF directly in the code. But only in some cases. Need to check my code for this. No need to change for anything else due to new Windows version. Atleast we will stick to our Paradox solution as long as we can. Peter

Form Feed
Dot matrix printer, printing invoices 8.5 x 11 ... after every invoice I get a formfeed (an empty invoice).. I have ran into this problem before and I believe what I have done is recreate the report and the problem goes away.  Anyone know how to fix this in a different and easier manner? This error only shows it ugly face after an edit to a well running report.  Out older epson took a dump and we bought a new oki 320 turbo 9 pin.. so I made some adjustments to the report to compensate to the printers start of form. This basically meant moving things up a bit. Grouped on order# with a table frame. report    page      group         all records         table frame ETC .. ETC..

Paradox Settings and Prefferences resetting win7
I moved to a Win 7 machine last year and since then, my Paradox 11 install has been resetting it's |Tools|Settings|preferences and DeveloperPreferences to factory defaults periodically. I save the settings the way I like them and then a couple of open/close cycles later, I notice that they have reverted to the factory defaults. It doesn't happen every time I open paradox, but I am guessing since I have multiple projects with different CFG files I am working in on a daily basis that somehow my custom defaults are getting deleted. This is behavior I did not see with Paradox11 on my WinXP machine. Anyone else seen this and come up with a fix? Thanks -SS

I don't see anything on ebay at the moment, either, and it's usually the most likely place to find anything.. you can buy it new, direct from Corel, of course, but it'll cost you

Prints with Problem (but scrolls properly...)
Hello, I have a particular mailing label report that just started to behave oddly: When I print the report, the result looks like this: GOOD LABEL 1, BLANK LABEL EJECTED, GOOD LABEL 2, BLANK LABEL EJECTED, GOOD LABEL 3, BLANK LABEL EJECTED, , To diagnose the problem, I viewed the report on screen, and it displayed LABEL 1. I clicked to view the next page, and expected to see a blank label, but instead, LABEL 2 appeared. As I clicked along, each label displayed in sequence properly, with no blank pages. So, when scrolling, all looks fine, but when printing, I get the alternation with blanks as I have described. What would be causing that situation, and how can I fix it? Many thanks, Lothar

Does Paradox have macro substitution?
I need to use the contents of a parameter to pull a field's contents. Visual FoxPro uses the & character for that sort of thing. Is there a Paradox equivalent? Edit: Fount it - it's called dereferencing, eg  sField = "Name"   ;Assign a field name to the variable., view(tcCustomer.(sField));Dereference the variable using parentheses. from:  https://www.prestwoodboards.com/ASPSuite/KB/Document_View.asp?QID=101169
