Deployment issues

Hi
I am trying to deploy a Delphi 7 application with MS Access 97 tables
connected by the BDE and I am running into issues only on Windows 2000
machines, which is weird because the program was written on Win2K. The
application runs perfectly fine on Windows 98 and Windows XP. The error I
get is unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred in the application
at location 0x7c57e592 and then when I say OK I get a General SQL error.

All I deploy with Installshield is the application's .exe file, the .res
files and the .dof file along with a number of runtime libraries from Turbo
Power and the BDE. Am I missing something?

Are you sure you get exaxtly the same error message with several
tested W2k machines?

I would quess that problem has nothing to do with W2k itself, but
with some difference in some installed library, or BDE file version
on those W2k machines.

With your development W2k machine you should check all the Windows
and Borland files and modules that are loaded and used, when your
application runs. Then check and compare the version differences with
the problematic W2k machines, and you'll find where the problem lies.

I use for instance free System Enumerator tool, that comes with Delphi
source, and shows all the loaded DLL libraries and other application
files. There are of course lots of other tools that are able to list
and show the loaded Win files.

Thanks Markku, I appreciate the insight. Yes, I do get the same error
messages on the Win2K machines and its driving me crazy. I will have a look
at the points you mentioned thanks again.
