MS SQL 6.5 and PowerBuilder 6.5
I have an application in PB6.5 that interfaces with MSSQL 6.5 database.
I can run this app WITHIN PB to make a connection the database and
retrieve data without a problem, but after I built the EXE file and
trying to run from that EXE file, I get a "-1" as the return code from
the SetTransObject statement. Sample code is like :
lds_datastore = CREATE datastore
lds_datastore.DataObject = "d_test"
li_return = lds_datastore.SetTransObject(SQLCA)
The d_test datawindow object consists of a simple SQL SELECT statement.

I have Powerbuilder 6.5 build 444 installed, but the
application I'm now supporting was built using 6.5.1. Is
there anywhere I can get the upgrade to 6.5.1?
When I go to the downloads area of this site it asks me for
client support which I don't think I have?
Sorry to say .. but, I think the only PB 6.x copies are in the Smithsonian.
The only hope you might have is through Sybase Technical Support.

Not really. Before you upgrade rebuilt the post offices and domains or
do at least a validate of the databases.

...PowerBuilder Upgrade 5.0 -> 6.0/6.5 for PowerFrame?
Has anyone upgraded PowerFrame (Metasolv's old framework) from PB 5.0
to PB 6.0/6.5? Did you run into any major problems? ANY upgrade
advice (PowerFrame or not) would be appreciated. Should I just wait
for 7.0? What's the latest on its release?
Please respond here or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks in advance,
(The last living person not using PFC. IT'S NOT MY CHOICE!)
Have you tried calling MetaSolv? I know that they dropped support for
PowerFrame in favor of Cornerstone but they may still be willing to help.

I am now working with PB 6.5.1, PFC 6.5 and Cornerstone 6.5.
What is best way to go:
Migrate whole application including PFC*.PBL 6.5 to 7 or replace PFC*.PBL from
6.5 with PFC*.PBL 7.0 or ...?
Any documents, links or readings about how to eliminate Cornerstone and only use
Thank you for your help
---== Posted via the PFCGuide Web Newsreader ==---
Why would you want to do that?
You do have the source to Cornerstone, right?
Or did they distribute their framework only as PBDs?
...Powerbuilder 5.0 in SQLServer 6.5...........
I am writing to you about the problem on connection between
PowerBuilder 5.0 and MS SQL Server 6.5 via Database Painter
in PowerBuilder 5.0.
When I tried to connect to a database, the connection was
successful. And I used "sa" to connect. But when I tried to
retrieve data from system tables or newly created tables. An
error message was displayed to me. It is "<Column-name>'s data
type is not supported". I checked that the database repository
tables were created already.

...Problems With datawindow scrolling in PowerBuilder 6.5 (and 6.0)
The datawindow scrolling functionality has been altered so that when
scrolling through a datawindow using the thumb, it is possible to view the
bottom of one page and the top of the next. This looks OK until a group is
created in the datawindow that has its own heading. When scrolling as
before, the heading remains in between the bottom of one page and the top of
the next which doesn't look particularly attractive, especially if there are
several items in the group heading.
In 65Maint.txt document it says the following:

with sending mail to yahoo. My question is do I have to upgrade
everything? On one server we have the MTA, GWIA, POA for our main
