App runs in PB but App crashes outside of PB
I am using PB 6.5 on Windows NT 4.0 SP3. I have a button/script that
when I run my app in PB or if debug my app. But if I run app outside of
and click on the same button it crashes. I have had the problem 5
with 5 different buttons/scripts. I would rebuild the entire app once
twice and the problem would go away. But this last time the problem
go away. I put dialogue boxed in the script to try to find the line
it crashes, but depending on where I put the dialogue box code or the
of dialogue boxes I use, the script crashe...PB 11 for old PB app
We support a vendor app written in PB, which, is entirely
client server. What are the benefits for us in switching to
PB11? One of our programmers tried to install PB 11 and he
was told he needed to install several .Net components just
to do the install, which seems like a lot of work to
support an existing PB app.
PB 11 is .Net based and can build WinForm, WebForm, .Net Assemblies,
..Net Web Service, and Smart Client applications. To do these, it requires
the .Net 2.0 runtime framework and the .Net SDK 2.0.
However, if you are still compiling a regular PB Native ...PB DLLs required for a PB app?
In a new job, I'm realizing all the things I took for granted...
When deploying a PB application, what Powerbuilder DLLs are required for
users to have on their hard drive in addition to the PBDs from our
application? Thanks much.
It depends on:
1. The version of PB you are using
2. What functionality you are supporting in the application.
It's all explained in the documentation, which you can access online at

Rick Charnes <email@example.com> ...PB GPFs while migrating an app from PB 5.0.2 to PB 8.0.1
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

I have the PBLs for a PB 8 application. But I only have PB 9 on my system.
How can I convert it?
Backup the pbls.
Create a target, add the remaining pbls. PB should handle everything.

Happy New Year !!!
I'm trying to implement Drag&Drop from a PowerBuilder application to
another application written in C++.
When the drag is initiated and the mouse pointer is leaving the
PowerBuilder application, the NoParking sign is displayed and the C++
app is not invoqued with a drop event.
What can I do about it ?
Is it some PB or Windows API that can allow a PB application to drop to
another app ?
Thanks for your help.

---------------------...PB 8 app and Citrix (problems closing down the app)
I have a PB8 app that runs in a WTS Citrix environment. If the user exits
the app then attempts to run it again they get an error saying the seamless
connection still exists. They have to manually kill the connection and
disconnect before re-running the PB app.
Any ideas ?
We're still on PB7, but it sounds like the application isn't closing down
cleanly. Don't rely on garbage collection to kill objects - if this is pfc, make
sure you're destroying gnv_app in the pfc close event.

We're currently in the process of converting a large PB5 (oracle 8 backend)
to Pb7. After building the application executables in PB7, we noticed that
application performance is worse under 7 than under 5. I am talking about
the amount of time it takes to open up screens. For example, it takes some
screens about 10 seconds to open up as opposed to 2-3 seconds under PB5.
Has anyone encountered this issue? Any clues would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way to call a visual basic form to process some data and the
results returned to powerbuilder?
you have to use COM or DDE and it will probably require some changes to the
VB app. I recommend COM if you are in VB4 or higher.

...PB WebForms app from 11.1 win32 app
I am converting my win32 pb 11 code to webforms. One thing I notice that is
annoying is that on my login form that appears immediately after the app
starts up in webforms, I can type in a user id but the OK button on the
window almost always requires two clicks to get the clicked event to fire.
The first click will generate the AJAX waiting message to appear for a very
short time, but nothing happens. Debugging into the clicked event shows
that the code is not entered on the first click. The second click always
fires the clicked event. The window is a simple response w...Running PB 7 and PB 8 Apps Simulataneously
