Since this isn't a OS related problem, I am posting this under Off the Wall. I have installed BDE and MSSQL 7.0 network connectivity clients under windows NT 4.0 and windows 98. It always works under windows 98. However, when I tried to connect to the SQL server via BDE Admin, I always get an error messages:

Code:

BDE Error: 13059          [$33] [$ 3]

General SQL error.

Alias: master_database


I have no problem connecting to the SQL server via ODBC though.

According to Delphi's faq (http://www.delphi32.com/info_facts/faq/faq_971.asp), it is caused by invalid database name. Since windows 98 have no problem connecting to the database with the same database name, I doubt it is a database name problem. MSSQL 7 should works fine under WinNT, and so is BDE 5.01.

Does anyone know what is the problem?

Anyone? I can't try it on wine since I am using PPC. Does anyone have similar problem?

Negative of negative is positive isn't it? So it isn't too bad. We have MSSQL 2000, but we don't want to go thru the troubles of upgrading and breaking things. Anyone, the problem is solved by reinstalling Windows NT 4.0. I suspect MDAC 2.8 breaks something in windows. Who knows, maybe they installed a windows 9x version of the dlls, which happens all the time back in the old days. Thanks for your input.
