I understand what you say but my point is that instead of using a custom
install for the BDE, you "only" need to make sure that the user uses the
right shortcut to start your application. In my case my installation creates
a shortcut that specifices working directory, private directory, the
BDE-configuration file and my start up script.
In this way I don't have to worry about the customers BDE settings. Forcing
"your" BDE-settings in the install could cause a conflict if the user use
the BDE for other things than your app. Maybe not so likely these days, but
why take the risk?
I have no clue why Leslies installer doesn't work with your setting for
thousand separator. I don't use his installer. I always install the BDE that
come with P10 runtime and never change any BDE-settings on the client side.
With Windows Vista, 7 and 8, I don't rely on the settings I see in the
BDE-administrator is actually in use.
Using the "-o" switch on the command line has been 100% reliable for me.

The problem is not in using/configuring BDE on my computer, is to install
this with a specific configuration on the CUSTUMERS COMPUTERS !
I used Leslie Milburn instaler in Inno Instaler.
I tested all parameters of [\SYSTEM\FORMATS\NUMBER] section, :
and ALL changes works, except the last : THOUSANDSEPARATOR=.
What to do ?
