two important points..

first, the default c: location of the net file has been 
bad/wrong/problematic since corel started doing that, 20 years ago.. on a 
real network, it will be somewhere out on the server, on a local install it 
should be changed to someplace specifically designated, so it will always 

second point, unfortunately, is that help for WP here, for any problem, is 
almost non-existent.. we all use paradox, hardly anyone uses WP

that said, my only guess/suggestion is that the latest WP installations 
aren't looking at the registry correctly.. nothing has changed, as far as 
how paradox works/installs.. if you set the net file location in the BDE, 
and paradox is running fine, it's totally a WP issue

Since some of the more recent updates to Windows 10 (64bit Machine) and
using Paradox 9, I find that when Merging in Corel Wordperfect (version
X4) using a Paradox *.DB file as the source I get an error as...
"Network Initialisation failed
File: C\PDOXUSRS.NET". In other words the Merge fails and refuses to run.

Now, I do realise, this is undoubtedly because PDOXUSRS.NET no longer
resides in the C:\ Drive. I have looked up on the net to see if I can
resolve this problem but the only suggestions I can find are related to
dates pre these recent Windows 10 Updates and they don't work for me. So
it seems that the issue has occured before on some machines but up until
the earlier parts of the year the merges were still working ok for me.

Can anyone give me some guidance on how to overcome this please?
