When installing runtime (any version o dbase) it installs by default where it it supposed to go.
So I can not understand when you say you copied runtime under the root. What did you copy and why.
Just run the runtime installer and it will install the runtime files and set registry ny itself.
PlusRun is not supposed to run as an application.
I think your whole approach in deploying your application is confused.
Further more if you intend to have the program file in one specific location and the data files in another also specific location just access the tables from within your application from that location. No need to change anything in the BDE.
