Do NOT look to the registry to solve this problem, that is the wrong 
approach. I have explained many times why people using the Registry 
eventually can screw up the BDE and even if you find a Paradox specific 
setting you will run into the same trouble.

The golden rule has always been to set your session "variables" at run 
time - do not expect "static" settings to live forever in case something 
occurs to change things - like someone else changing the registry to 
some other value.
