BDE Borland Database Engine


BDE Borland Database Engine is a software program developed by Luzius Schneider. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named vcredist.exe. The setup package generally installs about 105 files and is usually about 222.66 MB (233,476,592 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 28% of users of BDE Borland Database Engine come from Germany, it is also popular in the United States and Mexico.
