BDE Engine Error When Installing Delphi 3

I used InstallShield that comes with Delphi 3 to install a Delphi 3 program on another user's computer running Windows 98. The install includes the full BDE and two Paradox tables. When I try to run the program, I get an EDB Engine Error saying unknown database alias: DEFAULTDD. What could be causing this problem? Why would the installation work on one computer, but not another?

In your setup configuration, you need to create an alias called "DEFAULTDD" that points to the path where your tables are. Look under the BDE section in InstallShield Express. It's a fairly simple task.
