Yes, I have the document with the activation license ID and password. I
downloaded the installer. (I also bought the CD.) Most of my data and
progs reside on a server but my workstation is getting old. I feel safer.
I have a question; if I have the BDE and ODBC already configured from a
previous version, and I install v2019, will dBase link to the BDE and
ODBC? It seems to me that they do. Of course there are setting in dBase
that must be re-set.
Thanks for advice.
