Abstract: This article provides a few suggestions if you run into the error in the title when starting the BDE Administrator.

Problem:


When starting the BDE Administrator I receive the following error: 'Exception EDBEngineError in Module BDEAdmin.exe @00054f92. Cannot find Engine file.' This is followed by Runtime Error 216. What do I do?


Answer:


Here are a few suggestions:

1. Check your CONFIGFILE01 and DLLPATH keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Borland\Database Engine to be sure they point to the correct directory.

2. Check to see if there is a ViewMode key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Borland\Database Engine. If there is, edit the string so that there is no value data. If there is not, create the key and make sure there is no value data.

3. Up your SHAREDMEMSIZE in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Borland\Database Engine\Settings\System\Init
