Windows 2000 PowerBuilder 7.0 deployment and EAServer 4.1 on UNIX
Has anyone successfully deployed a PowerBuilder 7.0 application using
EAServer 4.1 on a Unix/Solaris platform and a Windows 2000 platform for the
I am having difficulty with blobs and resultsets being correctly handled
and properly returned from Unix to Windows.
If in fact this is a Sybase issue, how does one escalate?
The problems I was encountering went away once I upgraded the PowerBuiler
on the development machine to Version 7.0.3 build 10135 to match the PB VM
7.0 on EAServer 4.1.

Could I use PowerBuilder 7.0.2 on Windows ME platform?
I've used it in Win ME and now i'm using 7.0.3., since the upgrade it gives
less protection faults.

I have not seen any statement from Sybase on PowerBuilder
and Windows 7 support.
We have a big customer that plans to convert to Windows 7
We currently use PB 11.2.
Can we expect that PB 11.2 will get a maintenance version
that will support Windows 7, or will it be 11.5?
Historically, PB has seldom added official support for OSes in
maintenance release; this usually comes in major releases. I've heard
Sybase say Win7 support will be in PB12.
That being said, MS seems to have done a pretty good job on ap
compatibility, and several PB apps have been running on ...Powerbuilder 7 and Windows 2000
I am trying to find official documentation on the Sybase web site as to
which version of Powerbuilder will work with Windows 2000, without any luck.
Does anyone know where such information can be found?
I believe PB v7.04 and PB 8.0 support Windows 2000.

We are trying to run a powerbuilder application on Windows 2000 Server
running windows terminal services.
When the application starts we get the error Null Object Reference for the
instantiation of pfc_app_manager. This exact same executable runs fine on
Windows NT and Windows 98.
Note..we are running Powerbuilder 7.02 build 8033.
It sounds like it can't find all the pbd's in your library path. Make sure
all your pbd's are accounted for and in the same directory as the exe.

Has anyone tried to install PB 7.03 to Windows 2003?
I need some feedback. I installed succesfully and try to run an application.
If I try to use the F keyes (F1 F2 etc) then it gpfs.
I know PB 7 is out of support but has anyone done anything similar?
I believe that the first version of PB to be certified on W2003 is PB

Hi, I am purchasing a new laptop. They now come with
windows 7. Dell offers 32bit, HP offers 64bit. I am
running PB 11.5 and ASA 11. Can I use the 64 bit.
Also, does anybody report trouble using the AMD processors?
Thanks very much.
PB 11.5.1 that I am running works well on W7 both on the
32 and 64 bit varieties. However, even with PB 12.1 (latest
version) - PB is still a 32 bit IDE that generates 32 bit
application code. So in order to run on 64 bit systems, you
need to make sure that any external DLL's called and DBMS
client interfaces are...Powerbuilder, FTP and Windows 7
I have installed PB 11.5. I have an application that one of the lots of
thing that do is sending a file through FTP. I use a well known user
object that uses the wininet.dll library
All works fine in Windows XP, but in Windows 7 don't. Anyone knows how
make it work in Windows 7?
I have not tried the sample code from Topwiz so I have not comment on that
code. I have however used a c# assembly called via COM or from .Net deploy.
FTP is very simple in native c# framework and you should not have to...Size of Window
I am again with a problem with windows.
When I create a big window, when I put a Vertical Scroll, it works
fine, but, the scroll continue showing more than the content of the
window. Then I have a big grey area bellow the end of my window.
I've tried to change the UnitsPerLine propertie in the Scroll tab of
the window properties. It worked, but not as I wanted, because, ever
time I change the height of my window I have to change this, and it
depends on the resolution the user is using.
Is there a way to solve this?
Thanks a lot.
r...Powerbuilder 7 (NT) to Powerbuilder 8 (win2000) has migration issues
I work for a company called Stanley Associates, and we have independent
applications that were created under powerbuilder. Up until recently we had
been using PB7 without any problems or compilation errors. Upon creating a
new workspace, adding a target, and doing the initial rebuild, we ran into
several information statements and even some errors in our
migration/compilation. Silly statements like window name is invalid due to
global variable of same type, or incomatible types in assignment.

Does anybody know if PB 7 is supported on Windows XP Professional?
Also, PB 7 is very slow on a computer with windows 2000 (upto 12 minutes
to save..) but fast on windows 98 (but much slower computer).. The
question is does anybody have experienced problems of speed with Windows
XP Professional and PB 7?
Thank you all in advance for responses.
Thank you for the response.

What is the current status of applications build with 11.5 functioning
in Windows 7? I haven't really found anything other than
documentation stating that PB12 will support Win7.
Depends if you are asking 'is it supported' or 'does it run'.
I have no inside knowledge but my guess is Official support will probably
come in the next MR.
The does it run question can only be answered by you testing your app. Vista
and 7 introduced additional security restrictions on placement of updateable
files and certain types of registry settings.
