AxPath plugin for Tabax which works with Ax3, Ax4, Ax2009

Now you can download AxPath.dll (with sources) which works with Ax 3, Ax 4, Ax 2009. Previously it worked only if Ax3 was installed.

Ivan fixed it to work with Ax2009, now I have extended it to probe registry keys for Ax2009, Ax4, Ax3 (in that particular order) and work with the version found first.

If you do not know what AxPath and Tabax are - look at,

Fantastic! I got it working on my 2003 server as well! Thanks!

Do you know why it won't work on DAX 4.0 SP2 (+ hotfix #2)?

Is it a simple matter of changes to the DLL source code and then recompile it?

Try to debug, if you can (I've used delphi turbo explorer)

P.S. It now works great with DAX 4.0 SP1, just not with SP2 ;)

The issue with SP2 resolved itself, it was just a matter of registering it properly.

two tests on different machines (32bit Win 2003 R2 Std. and 64Bit Win 2008 R2 Ent.) failed because of the axpata-3-is-not-installed-error.
I used the archive from axaptapedia (
Do you know why this DLL still tries to check the version 3 installation?

Kind regards,

This is wrong error message - it aclually probes all registry pathes, see the getPrefix function in .dpr
