PB 6.5 Migrated from PB 5.0 Application deployment
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.
My OS is NT 4.0 SP4 and the application path includes the app/pbd'...migrating from pb 5.0 -> pb 6.0/6.5 any pothole

Just wondering, PB-9.0 update require license CD of 7.X/8.X? This is b_coz
we ordered pb-9.0 update and we have 6.5 installed in our company.
Simply refuse to install from 6.5
Big height is Sybase sales person didn?t know this!!!
The Upgrade normally applies to only the previous version or two.
Where are you located? Sybase has just announced a special offer for
people who have versions of PB prior to PB 7.x.
I'm not sure if this offer is good world wide, but let me know where
you are located and I'll see what we can do for you.

This sounds like a goofy question but I am migrating some PFC dependant

Check to make sure you installed them. By default, unless you do a custom
install, they aren't. (Don't ask me why, I think they should be deployed
by default so everyone can start using them).
If they were, then look under:

I currently support a couple of PB5.0 applications and I am looking to
upgrade them to PB 6 or 6.5. I read the 6.5 documentation that said you
need to remove all previous versions of PB before installing. I would
like to have 5.0 and 6.0 or 6.5 coexist so that I can still support the
old application while I work the 6.5 to learn and study the upgrade.
So, can they co-exist and what problems might I run into?
Thanks , Doug

The migration should be straightforward. Back up your PB 5.0.04 source,
run the migration once and note the errors, warnings, etc... that are
generated from the migration. Fix those in your backed ...Problems migrating from PB 5.0.03 to PB 6.5
I am having problems running the my application after migrating it to PB 6.5.
The application was migrated successfully. Then, I added all the new
PFC objects and PBLs as per the guidelines provided by Sybase. The full rebuild
was also successful except for a few warnings about instance variables of
local structure type being implicit in the next release. However, when I start
up the application and try to open any screen having datawindows, it crashes
with Dr. Watson's error.
Did anybody have a similar experience?
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

...MS Word 97 embedded in PB 5.0 and PB 6.5 application
I am exploring the possibility of embedding the word interface in a
Powerbuilder MDI application (versions 5.0 and 6.5) Users will use Word to
edit and to view documents. Can this be done or can I only use Word by
opening it external of a powerbuilder application?
Yes, you can .in the window painter, controls box choose OLE ,then insert new
tab, then word document.
change its properties for the behaviour you like (linked,embedded)
try it, and also read about ole embedding and linking (I think PB have it in
the online books) to get more understanding.

I am hving a hard time trying to convert from Powerbuilder v4.0 to v5.0.
After I have migrated the entire application, i then try to open up a
Window and keep getting the message "Open of Window failed. Application
has been converted to newest version; window must be re-migrated". I then
try to re-migrate the Window and re-open it and again the same message.
Does it definitely say 'remigrated' and not 'regenerated'? If the latter,
then regenerating all objects should sort it.
