graphic readfromfile
I have used graphic readfromfile for years successfully in WinXP, Win7 and, until recently, Win10.  All of a sudden, I get "Cannot read file".  It had worked perfectly until a Win10 update.  Corel support is unresponsive.  Desperate at this point.  Does anyone have a work-around suggestion? Thanks. Bob

Run Vietual Machine on Linux
Couple of options: 1.Run Dosemu in Linux. 2. Run older version of windoze in VMWare.  VMWare works great on RedHat and other Linux versions. Option 2 works best. Hapoy Computing!

Leap year date of birth
To all, I have a report that includes dates of birth when printed.  I have 4 digit year set as true in the BDE. For one particular dob (2/29/1996), the date of birth prints as 2/29/2996!  In the table, it is 2/29/1996.  This is a leap year birthday.  Although obviously not correct, it concerns my users. This report has printed tens of thousands of dates of birth and this is the first one they have noticed is wrong. Any thoughts? Greg

Index out of Date
Hi all, I have run Paradox 8 on a Server 2003 for over a decade using RDP sessions with dozens of users.  I upgraded to Paradox 11 and Windows 10 clients.  All still fine.  This week, though, I migrated my database from a Server 2003 to a Server 2016.  All programs run fine but I am getting multiple index out of dates each day when multiple users save data in the tables.  So far, I have: 1.  Disabled write cache on drives 2.  Excluded database directories and c:\netdir directory from Windows Defender scanning 3.  Edited LanmanServer and LanmanWorkstation to add keys 'enableoplocks'=0 and 'disableoplocks'=1 4.  Local share on BDE=true 5.  All sessions map to the same c:\netdir for control file and use same path to database tables Any help from those who have succeeded with a Server 2016 hosting tables in an RDS environment would be greatly appreciated.

The variable are populated correctly so any advise is most appreciated. son = 22013, sol = 1  , qvar = Query Answer: :CaliachData:rptWorkorders.DB , WORKORDERS.db |WKOWONO | WKOPTNO |WKOBAL | WKOUSER | WKOUSE1 | WKOUSE2 | WKOUSER3 | WKOUSER4 |, , |CHECK | CHECK |CHECK | CHECK |CHECK ..~sol | CHECK | CHECK ..~son| CHECK | Endquery ExecuteQBE(qvar), tv.open(":CaliachData:rptWorkorders.DB") Thanks

filter button disappears when using dialogBox
Howdy.  I've got a form that I use for dataEntry.  When I use a dialogBox routine, the Pdox menu changes and when I close the dialogBox, those menu changes remain with my main form.  The important thing for me here is that I lose the capability to use Filters.  I have not found a way to reset the menu to the correct one.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

you don't want to generically mask something that's wrong.. there's a focus issue here.. are you sure the dialog isn't just minimized, or hiding under the form?

Mouse WHEEL Movement
In PDOX 8,  the mouse wheel had no impact on the paradox environment,  It just didn't work. Now in PDOX 11,  the mouse wheel is allowing users to scroll off of the record they should be Adding/Editing.  The user is then focused on a blank screen. Is there a way to trap that event?  I dont see any clues in the help doicument when it comes to scrolling mouse wheels. Currently I use the KeyPhysical event to prevent users from using the arrow keys to move from record to record,  but does not prevent the MOUSE action
