Our application runs fine on every version of windows from XP to latest 
Windows 10 and we are using the BDE API directly from C++

The only issue we have had crop up is the Insufficient Shared memory 
problem which with the most recent updates of Windows 10 has gone away 
on our test machine without us changing anything.

So, the BDE is not failing as yet but the clock is ticking.
