Q: When clicking on Help, then selecting About, in BDE Administrator version 5.10, the version shown is 5.01. Why?
A: When Borland released the 5.10 version of the BDE, they did not recompile the BDE Administrator. Therefore the BDE Administrator still indicates that it is version 5.01. [This information per Borland's web site at http://community.borland.com/article/0,1410,10308,00.html] However, from within Visual dBASE 7.5 you can check the date of the BDE being used by one of two methods:
1) Click on Help | About from within the Visual dBASE 7.5 IDE, and look at the "BDE" line. BDE 5.10 shows a date of "6/21/1999."
2) In the Command window, give the command:
The value returned is:
BDE version: 06/21/1999
for BDE version 5.10.
