BDE Engine Error When Installing Delphi 3

Question:
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?

Answer:
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.
