I have factored out the application because the BDE is a layer
between the Delphi executable and the database server. I ruled out
the software by going directly to the DBE and using the alias
connection created to see if it would auto-connect and it did.

I did not say it was a bug. I am a 20y/o intermediate developer and
the last place I would expect a bug is in a distribution by a
software giant.

I do use a TDatabase object but they property to show the login
prompt is on so you must idealy enter a valid login and password to
login. I may well have to code a unit to replace this method as a
work around.

Thanks a million for your input! If u got any other ideas let me know.
