Hello Jan

this looks great but I have a couple of questions in relation to it. 
Leslie might also have some input.

 From what I can see it needs Autoit - so the same thing essentially as 
Autohotkey. But what I cant figure out quickly is how it works. And 
Leslie has provided quite a bit of information about how the issues of 
memory leakage for Paradox are related to BDE and some of the calls 
particularly those related to queries not closing properly. Leslie dont 
cane me if I have not quite got that right but I did spend quite a bit 
of time trying to solve this issue a few years ago.

Anyway Jan coming back to BDE how does it work? And will your version 
deal with the repeated queries not releasing the memory which is my 
biggest problem.
