VB 5.0-based ActiveX control in PB 6.0 (build 189)
Has anyone had luck using a VB 5.0-generated ActiveX control into a PB 6.0
(build 189) window? Even simple VB-based ActiveX controls (e.g., a label
control) choke, even when simply being placed on a window (error hex
80004005). Same problem when the window is opened from the library
painter. When the window runs, I get a PB run-time error 445 (object
doesn't support this action), even though my PB app makes NO calls to the

We are in the process of evaluating whether or not we should migrate our
applications from PB 6.5 to PB 7.x or PB 8.x. Our application is a client
server application connecting to Oracle 8.1.7 and we are using PVCS for our
source code control.
What are the pros and cons of moving our applications to a newer release
(either 7.x or 8.x)?
What version and release is recommended?
Main change you will see in SCC, if you are migrating to 8.0.1.

I have a question about compatibility between PB native driver and oracle
sql*net for different versions of Power Builder.
We have 3 applications developed in 3 different versions of Power Builder:
5.00.0.0, 220.127.116.110 and 7.0.10047
All of them are using the Oracle Client 8.1.6 and accessing via PB Native
Driver to Oracle. Although this is combination is not supported, the person
in charge of the PB part tested this combination and decided to upgrade
the oracle client from version 7.3.X to 8.1.6. So far it is working
properly for us.

Hello everyone. I am trying to make a PB app look a lot like a web page. I
am inserting an OLE object I made in ULead 3.0 GIF Animator. The OLE is a
moving text, like a marquee. However, when I insert it into PowerBuilder,
it does not move. Do I need to do something else, i.e. call the OLE,
register a .dll or activate the OLE?
...PB 6.5.1 and ActiveX controls
I'm new to PowerBuilder and would like to know if there are known
limitations in ActiveX control hosting in PB.
So far we have only done some tests with Delphi. Although the control does
work properly, we are experiencing problems when closing the window where
the control has been inserted (an unhandled exception appears).
Otherwise our control works properly in whatever container you like except

To what extent does PB 5.0 support ActiveX controls. Cresent Software
sells an array of Internet related ActiveX's for VB. Is is possible to
use these controls in a PB 5.0 app.
My experience with ActiveX and PB has been overall very positive.
As long as you're using version 5.0.03. PB's implementation of OCX
support wasn't exactly stellar in the previous versions.
I recommend downloading Crescent's demo, and try to do some stuff with it.

I have a client who needs to move from an initial PB 5.0 release (no patches
applied) to a newer version of PB. This is a small internal application but
they would like to open it up via the internet in the future. They are
currently running on a SQL Anywhere DB but would be looking to change that
I don't have any hands on experience with PB 7.x but from what I heard and
read it hasn't been that great. I've been using PB 6.5 since build 444 and
was thinking of recommending that they make the move to 6.5 first and then
wait for PB 8.0 later this year.

We have three servers running MS SQL Server 6.5. PB 5.0 applications (both
PB client apps and PB apps running on the servers at night as part of batch
jobs) have been running on them for a long time. Native drivers are used.
I'm starting to replace these apps with PB 6.5 versions of them.
With respect to two of the servers, I can connect to the databases from all
the new apps - both client PC apps and batch apps. On the third server, I
can connect to the databases using the client PC apps only. When the apps
in the night job run, the CONNECT statement gets the following error
I am still trying to get the active x control to download from our
production web server to any client machines.
I was able to setup the page to run in conjunction with my local web
server. The control downloads, and my registry is updated so that the
next time the page is opened, the active x control loads.
It would be nice to see the same behavior when accessing a similar page
on the network web server. I unregistered the control, then accessed
the htm page on our web server. The active x control does not
download! Is there something wrong with the following script?

Has anyone had success constructing a VB 5.0-based ActiveX control and
embedding it in a PB 6.0 window? When inserting the control into the PB
window, I get a run-time error number 80004005. I can insert the same
ActiveX control in a VB applicatoin, and I can also construct JavaBeans,
register them as ActiveX controls (jactivex), and insert them into PB 6.0.
What's the deal with VB-based ActiveXs????

...PB 6.5 crashes when trying to insert an OLE control
I have an app in PowerBuilder 6.5 (DBMS MS SQL Server 2000, OS: Windows XP
Professional Version 2002 SP 2). We've created an OCX using VisualBasic. We
had previously inserted it into a Custom Visual User Object without any
problems. In fact, the app is working with the client normally. Time passed
by... and now, we can't do it. When we Click Controls \ OLE a Insert Object
window displays. We can switch between the "Create New" and "Create From
File" tabs. However, when we click in the "Insert Control" tab, PB crashes.
