Application in Powerbuilder 5.0.2 with PFC
I recently found myself in charge of an application built in Powerbuilder
5.0.2 using the PFC. Nobody seems to have the installation disks for PB
5.0.2 available anymore, so I was looking at Powerbuilder 8. I have never
used PB 8 nor have I used PFC in any version. My 2 questions are 1) can and
go from PB 5.0.2 to PB 8 and 2) how do you migrate using the PFC?? Thanks.

Can anybody tell me if its possible to run a second PB application from
an already running PB application?
If yes, then is there any way to terminate the first application and
continue with the second?

You can trigger user events mapped to pbm_custom01-pbm_custom75 by using the
SendMessage Win32 API using message IDs between 1024 and 1098, respectively.
You will need to use the FindWindow API to get the handle of the main window
of the application you want to "talk" to.

I need to have 2 powerbuilder application be able to communicate with one
another. A string is all I need to pass between the two applications.
I tried creating a com object that I could connect to from both
applications. This com object would basically store the information I want
to pass between the two applications in an instance variable. One
application would populate that instance variable, then notify the other
application(through the send command) to go read the information in the com
I created the com object fine and can call a function on the com object

My applications with out SQLCA run great through Powerbuilder WDK, my
applications that contain SQLCA information doesn't. When I run the
application in PB I get a splash screen and then the application starts.
When I run it through PB WDK the splash screen starts and the I get a login
box. No matter what I do it always show's up and when I hit OK I get the
following SQLSTATE = 08001 error. How can I stop this from occurring? The

until the launched application terminates before continuing. How can I do it
using PowerBuilder and Windows API ?

I am trying to get a project to write a frontend PB GUI application
for a mainframe General Ledger.
I have succeeded to make an example for a login and CEMT list + update
of CICS programs. The customer requires me to do an example based
on a very small part of the General Ledger so that he can demonstrate
to his colleagues this is viable and this will remove the necessity of
for the users to pass through natural and cumbersome mainframe
screens to reach general ledger. They intend to have the whole of general
to get a GUI interface...

ver 10.5 is there an easy way of finding which pb runtime
files i need to deploy with my application to create an
installation for a customer
First of all, check out the PB runtime packager, and documentation in HTML
books under application techniques, chapter 40.
You can also use tools like process explorer (www.sysinternals.com - now
Microsoft) that lists the active DLL's used by an application. Including
tools like Dependency Walker (www.dependencywalker.com). (That even
integrates with Process Explorer.)

I have an application (App A)built using PB7.0.3 build 10077 and it
seems to work fine. However, recently, another application (App B)
built using PB 7.0.3 build 10047 as well was installed and it seems to
trigger Dr Watson on App A.
There is an embedded OCX on a "main" window on App A, which receives
triggers from external applications. The OCX will then call another

We have recently migrated our full source from PB 9 to PB 11.5. We
found that the program is running extremely slow. We noticed that it
happens mostly when using GUI. There are delays even when tabbing
though controls on the screen.
We run tracing on both environments, and most of the functions show
that the response time is better in PB 11.5, but the experience of
using PB11.5 application is very slow anyway.
Has anyone experienced the same?
