 How to use dbase files in vbasic 3 ?

Hello,

When I try to  read dbase files in Visual Basic 3.0, I get the
folowing message: " COULDN'T FIND INSTALLABLE ISAM "

However, vb.ini has the good reference to xbs110.dll.

Could anyone help desparate french developper ?

I had the (dubious) fortune of having to write a VB 3.0 program in Win
3.1 which was accessing a dBase III database (not my choice). After much
hair pulling (and I don't have much hair) I got it to work. I deduced
that my program had to create it's own INI file in the C:\WINDOWS with
the following sections:

[Database]
Name=C:\REPORT\DBR
Connect=dBASE III
Exclusive=No
Read Only=No

[Installable ISAMs]
dBASE III=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\XBS110.DLL

[dBase ISAM]
Deleted=On

What got me for a while was that everything would work whilst debugging
mode, because of VB.INI having the above sections I presume, but not
when running the EXE.

Hope this helps.
