First thing to know is that the idapi.cfg was never designed to be 
shared across a mapped drive (Terminal Server is a different situation).

Secondly, the BDE installer that came with Paradox is too problematic to 
use out of the box because it is for a pre-Windows Vista world and 
requires extra configuration to ensure the permissions are correct.

So try the installer located here:

and if you insist on sharing the idapi.cfg (please don't) then you can 
update the installer's defaults.
