Paradox 11 and Settings - 09-07-2006 , 09:48 AM
I am running Paradox 11 for the first couple weeks since installing it from
WP Office X3. I guess it should be called Paradox X3 to distinguish it from
other Paradox 11 packages, in case there are quirks. In any case, if I go
into preferences and developer preferences and change settings, these are
retained just as I want them for as long as I exit and relaunch Paradox for
the duration of one Paradox user session. However, when I reboot my
computer, Paradox loses all custom settings. In fact, even worse, it seems
to delete the registry entry under Pxdlite/Tools where ProView and other
custom tools are installed, so I have to recreate these every single time.
<sarcasm>Can it be made any more difficult to use?</sarcasm>
Many thanks for any input,

Do a "repair" install - or whatever it's called - it's the option for
ensuring all the files are there, the registry settings exist, etc.
(I had the same problem with the same Paradox rev and this fixed it.)

Could this be that registry entry that executes that routine that wipes the
settings on reboot?

That's what I thought when I first experienced it, but it was a
different version of P11, seemed specific to that version of WPO and
so I tried the repair install first and that fixed it.

Should be "for the duration of one *Windows* user session" but I think
everyone got what I meant.

Running a repair installation did not fix the problem. Clobbering the
executable as described in tek-tips did.
Many thanks Liz and Come,

This little script might be helpful.
Although it is not hard to edit the registry,
this method could be put as part of an ssl
and could be run on any machine with installations of new pdox.
liRootKey = regKeyLocalMachine
stRegMenuKey = "Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run "
stRegNode = "PdxRegCl"
msginfo("Info","PdxRegCl removed from registry")
errorshow("deleteRegistryKey ret false-probaly didnt exist")
