wow.. just did some searches, and the few pdox-lcapp errors are all about a decade old.. the solution that seemed to have the most reliable sources was "not logged in as admin".. but mixed results, for anything that was suggested

Migration from Paradox to Access
Is the following scenario feasible:
  • Keep the existing PARADOX application, but move the data from *.db to MS-SQL
  • Re-program PARADOX-Forms etc. in Access step by step and use the MS-SQL Data in parallel with PARADOX and Access
  • If this is an option, who can support us? Michael

    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

    RE: Paradox 11 Runtime - Unexpecte
    Turns out the runtime was crashing beacause of interdependence of certain libraries.  The order that they were opened and the order that they were closed cause the crash. Open LibA Open LibB  (which also opens LIBA because it has a dependency on LIBA) Open LIBOthers Close LibA Close LibOthers Close LibB   = Crash Simply closing them in the reverse order that they were opened fixed the issue.

    Paradox 11 not printing to network printers
    I have just re-installed my Paradox 11 on a Windowsx64 laptop and I cannot get it to print reports from Paradox reports themselves. However, they work perfectly if I call them up from a form in objectPAL. When I just try to print in a new Paradox sessionm I get a dialogue box that says: Printer interface setup error/ LCAppPrint Initialize failed!  Then Windows 10 just closes the program. I'm not all that good with finding out where my problem lies. Could anyone point me to some solution, please? Tony

    Windows 10 (Creators update) Print issue
    I recently converted another user over to the Paradox 11 Runtime. I now have 10-12 users on the runtime This particular user is experiencing a strange error.  Any report that is sent directly to a Printer causes the runtime to crash.  Sending the same reports to the screen works,  but then subsequently attempting to print another crash Using a PDF Printer works without error. The printers are networked printers,  Paradox V8 on Win 10 had no problem printing to them. I have one other user with a similar problem,  in that users case, they are running Pdox11 runtime in a Remote Desktop environment,  They get the error if they are sending the job to a REDIRECTED printer.   If they send the job to a printer that is not redirected,  then the progam works correctly. Any thoughts?? Jeff

    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

    yes, paper size mis-match can always do strange things if you kick it to pdf first, you can see what's coming, before you start.. but with something like labels, that might get weird, too, cuz that's not normal paper size

    Corrupt Form... Now what?
    Hello, I run Paradox 9 SP4 with Win 10. After some diagnostic errors that had me deeply concerned, I just discovered that problems I am having occur only when I try to modify a particular form. (Whew...) That form has nothing on it other than about a dozen buttons, and I have to occasionally tweak some of the button code. Starting earlier today, I found that whenever I clicked to save, or check syntax, for code on any of the buttons, Paradox would crash. Saving code on objects on other forms works just fine. So, that would seem to indicate that the form in question is somehow corrupted. I guess that I could create a new form, draw in those buttons, and cut & paste in their code. But is there a better approach to correcting the problem I am describing? Sincere thanks, Lothar

    No printers installed on the system?
    Hello, I run PSP4 under Win 10. When I now try to print (with code, or manually), I get the error "No printers installed on the system." In fact, several printers are installed, and work properly from software other than Paradox. How can I get Paradox to see those printers again? Many thanks, Lothar

    Problems with printerSetCurrent
    I am having problems using the printerSetCurrent() command, it works OK on a machine that I have admin rights on but it will not work on machines were the user does not admin rights, the program locks up when it executes the command. Can anyone confirm that the lack of admin rights is causing the problem and is there a work around? Thanks Bill

    Paradox on Windows Server 2012
    We migrated from using a run of the mill Windows XP box as a server to Windows Server 2012; one of the applications we use is a simple 3 table database which stopped working the moment the files were being accessed from the new server. We could see data but trying to add anything would result in a Lock Time Out error. I discovered that if I remove Referential Integrity from the detail table structure, and just assign it through the data model on the form, everything works. Would it be OK to leave it like that? or would it be somehow dangerous for the integrity of the data? Could the problem have come from some setting on the server? The person who installed the server for us doesn't think so but I'm not sure he is as familiar with Windows 2012 Server as I thought. For the time being I will be monitoring the data and checking that nothing is lost. Any suggestions? Thanks

    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
