Paradox Runtime 9 (with Service Pack 3)


Install Instructions

Installing the Runtime is a matter of double-clicking on the icon labeled "ParadoxRuntime9SP3setup.exe". The installation program will unpack the data file into the C:\Temp directory and run its setup routine from there. Please accept the Default installation location suggested in the install program. If you install the Paradox Runtime in another location, your installation problems will compound when you attempt to install ADP's applications. ADP does not support installations of the Paradox Runtime in non-default locations.

Licensing of the Runtime is automatic for all Paradox for Windows version 9 applications distributed by ADP. It is only necessary to have one Runtime v9 installation on a machine, no matter how many Paradox v9 applications are installed on that machine. Paradox applications developed for earlier versions of the Paradox Runtime will only run on those earlier versions.

Do not install Runtime v9 on a computer that has an in-use older version of Paradox Runtime installed on it. It will overwrite the older version and make your older programs inoperable.
