Description
My applications fail sometimes on a VISTA-System with BDE Error 2501 resp. 210D.

Maybe there is a specific configuration of SHAREDMEMLOCATION and SHAREDMEMSIZE or other parameters of the BDE on VISTA-Systems (like specified in the bdeadmin help files or in the article http://info.borland.com/devsupport/sqllinks/pub-88.html)

Of course there may be the recommendation to migrate from BDE to another technology, but
* Delphi 2007 creates native code applications compatible with Windows 2000, XP, AND Vista (as mentioned in the product description (http://www.codegear.com/products/delphi/win32)
* Delphi 2007 officially supports BDE (as mentioned in the feature matrix: http://www.codegear.com/article/34372/images/34372/Delphi2007Win32FeatureMatrix.pdf)
Steps to Reproduce:
Program complex software solutions using BDE and Paradox. Let the solutions run on a VISTA-System and do a stress test. Then sometimes the errors 2501 or 210D will occur.

Sorry I do not have a certain method which will produce this failure.
