GoldMine cannot dynamically load functions from IDAPI32.DLL.
Please re-install the Borland Datábase Engine (BDE).
BDE Error: 8458

I recently have this error.
Under windows 10 home.
I suppose may be some new application or an update from the operating system.
Goldmine 5.5 is installed in a portable way with no problem until this moment.

I see a post in Ivanti : https://forums.ivanti.com/s/question/0D54O00006BRTwtSAH/question-on-goldmine-error-bde-error-8458
but I think doesn't apply to my case.

In all other aspects I need the program was going perfectly well until this moment.


I have detected in the windows registry this :


and some values on it.
I was searching for Borland in the registry


I think I can delete all this and try again.....

I will revise and inform you.
Best Regards

I have scanned the windows registry
There are several keys affected :


Several I recognize with the usual configuration for goldmine in bdadmin

I need to make the proof and comment. Deleted all these keys in the registry and reinitate the system and see it is solved.

Edited : 20.02.2020.20.43
I deleted all keys naming borland in the windows registry and now , after reinitiating , run goldmine again.

So It wasn't a windows update I suppose.

I will revise all new free software to see if anyone is affecting goldmine to delete from the holy earth or use under virtual machines.

I need my goldmine , or at least I prefer goldmine running in windows 10 under certain conditions....

Experimenting :
I opened with goldmine opened :

Mura from lamp s.a. a free technical program
cool selection from Danfoss
ducto from Atecyr
CoolPack from Department of Mechanic Engineer Denmark.

I close everything and open everything.

So I really don't know what happens....

Here's a shot in the dark:

Try running GoldMine as administrator and browsing to the BDE location when prompted.

The reason: when you 'run as administrator' it can sometimes help to STICK the registry entries for GoldMine.

If that works, you shouldn't keep running it as administrator, though, for multiple reasons. Just run it normally form then on.
