I prefer "local" approach.

In startup script of my app I check for important settings in BDE.
I just check (not set) and compare with INI settings.
If something is off, I tell user to call support and abort app.

I've seen some Delphi apps setup to f**k up BDE settings.
Also some setups for apps, that use Postgres or some other SQL, can change  
BDE settings.

So with local cfg file, just that one machine stops working, other users  
are OK.
It is easier to find problem and solve it.
