Subject Re: [IBO] Moving BDE to direct IB connection, still connects via BDE?
Author Chuck Belanger

It pops up with login dialog (when I specifically set the properties to not do so) and on top it refers to the BDE alias: IBLocal.

Somehow I think I'm missing something fundamental here! but just can't find the error. It is my first time to use IBO without the BDE.

Its as though it saved some previous connection information somewhere and automatically refers to that. I did have the app using the BDE alias initially and
just yesterday tried to change it.

Thanks for whatever help you can give,
