BDE Install fails on some users machines, why?
Twice now users have tried to install the BDE on their respective
machines only to have the BDE install program fail with the message below:
"Cannot execute install.exe (or one of its components)
Check to insure that all components (instxtra.pak) are available"
Yet I have installed the BDE on a dozen other machines, from the same
files, and it works fine. Unfortunately the two machines it fails on are
not anywhere near me, geographically speaking, so there is no way I can do
a detailed analysis of why the BDE installation fails. As I said, it has
so far failed on only these two machines and not any others. Anybody have
any idea why the BDE is failing to install?
It sounds like it is missing a DLL, but which one? All of the install
files are present as far as I can determine and the user has plenty of
hard drive space for the install. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
