You specify a particular configuration file to use with the -o option on
the start command of the shortcut:
A full start command might look like this (broken down into lines for
2002\programs\pdxwin32.exe" ;;<< path to program
-c ;;<< clear desktop
-p "C:\Users\Public\pdoxdirs\manager_invoice\pdxpriv" ;;<<path to
-o "C:\Users\Public\pdoxdirs\manager_invoice\BDE\idapi.cfg" ;;<< BDE
file to use
-w "\\APPSERVER1\data\manager_BETA" ;// working directory
managerstartupP10.fdl ;// form or script to launch on startup
Caveat about setting the BDE config file is that all running BDE
applications must use the same BDE file.
I've also never seen any real performance changes by fiddling with the
BDE settings in WIN 10 or higher. I use it to set the network directory,
