View Full Version : Help - Borland Data Base Engine

22-02-2010, 02:18 PM
I am having problems with my Family tree Database conversion, which uses Borland DBE. I have upgraded Kith & Kin (aka Of that Ilk) to version 3, and need to run the conversion programme KKP3Conversion.exe to convert my old data files to the new version. On doing so, I get an error message: Error - Borland DBE -(error $2A06), which I have found somewhere as meaning that the DBE failed to initialise. Kith & Kin do not support the Borland product. All help much appreciated.
Win XP.
Thanks, KB.

Which operating system are you using? Windows XP or something older?

You say you upgraded Kith & Kin but it does not support the Borland DBE. Please tell us more.
What does Kith & Kin support and what did you upgrade from. If you keep having trouble you could send it to me as I have the full Borland DBE or else export as a gedcom file from the old version.

Export to GEDCOM seems like a really good move, then import to a new blank DB

Thanks for replies. The suggestion by Ofthesea seems to have done the trick. KB.
