PowerBuilder Bugs: Using VB ActiveX control (OCX) in PowerBuilder 6.0
I'm going to write some VB ActiveX control (using Microsoft VB6.0 SP3)
to be used in PowerBuiler 6.5,
but I found that it's very easy to crash in PowerBuilder,
Here is the test case:
1) Create a very simple VB ActiveX control (only one button without any
script) in Visual Basic
2) Create a PB project to open a Main Window (w_1) with an ole object of
VB ActiveX control
3) Open another Window (w_2) with an ole object of VB ActiveX control
(can be same as previous or other control)
4) Click the OLE object in w_2 to make it get focus
5) Close w_2 -> it will crashed

...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
I'm looking for good resources about what can and cannot be done when you're
implementing an ActiveX control. Our preferred method should be Visual C++

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

Why would you want to do that?
You do have the source to Cornerstone, right?
Or did they distribute their framework only as PBDs?

I am trying using ActiveX controls in PB6.5, but when I want to get the

We're attempting to include a VB Active X control in a PB 6.5
application. We've included the necessary dll's along with it. When
running the application in both development mode and as an executeable,
we open the application, open the window that the control is on (without
"touching" the control), exit PowerBuilder, and our application gpf's.
If running in development mode, PB gpfs when we attempt to restart it.
If we don't go into the window where the Active X control is located,
everything works fine. The gpf we're getting appears to be a VB dll,
