Yes and the correct "way around this" is to not run Paradox elevated.

Surely someone by now has created an installation checklist/scripts for 
Paradox to ensure that it can run within a User account. Hopefully John did 
not do this because he uses the default BDE installer rather than our one 
modified for the UAC world.

But if I had little choice, I much prefer using UNC paths (if possible) over 
the registry hack for mapped drives.
