Did some more research. I found that one of the machines is using 
IDAPI.cfg and the other 2 are using IDAPI32.cfg.

Can someone tell me how to force Pdox to use IDAPI32.cfg because when I 
eleiminate the IDAPI.cfg it just makes a new one. Thank you.

Peter

Update:
Registry:
Local_Machine\Software\Borland\Database Engine\CONFIGFILE01 (changed 
from IDAPI.cfg to IDAPI32.cfg).

That seems to have done it, now all 3 machines are running idapi32.
Unfortunately it has not amde a difference :(
