I recently migrated a PFC/PFE application from PB 5.04 to 6.5. I have
compiled it down to p-code and am able to run the application from both the
developement environment & from the EXE on the machine that has PB 5.04
installed on it. When I move the application and the PB 6.5 deployment DLL's
to a machine without PB 5.04 on it, it starts asking me for the whole set of
PB 5.04 deplymnt DLL's. It's like there is some sort of dependance on PB
5.04 that I didn't break during the migration process.

- run Migration Assistant in destination version; try to deal with as
much as possible in original version
- full build, with information and warning messages turned on, so you
know which messages after migration aren't new
- backup, backup, backup
- if it crashes, try again and watch messages to see if you ca...PB 5.0.4 Application can't migrate to PB 6.5

Hi, I am trying to migrate an application from PB 5.0.02 to PB 8.0.01.
The application runs perfectly under PB 5.0.02.
While migrating the app, I get the following message:
Pb80 has caused an error in PBVM80.DLL.
Then PB crashes.
Any suggestions? Moreover, does anyone know of some white paper
with some advices on migrating apps?
Before migrating, you should run the Migration Assistant (File / New /
Tools). Make any suggested changes with PB5 before migrating. Of
course, backup, backup, backup. Then, optimize all the PBLs and do a

We are using PB 5.04 Enterprise at this moment and are almost happy (uch)
Because we don't programming applications for the Internet (maybe in the
near future) we haven't upgraded to version 6.0 and 6.5. Now we are confused
what to do, keeping the old and 'stable' version (5.04) or upgrading to a
newer version. Are there features in the newer versions wich make it a
'must' to upgrade. What are this features. Or are there reasons to stay on
5.04 (buggy newer versions?).

I haven't seen any problems. The files are all named differently, so
there should be no problem.
