Oracle 8.03/PB 5.03/Beta Oracle 8 PB Driver
I'm using the beta oracle 8 driver posted by powersoft. For the most
part it seems to work, however, when I preview a datawindow that has
input parameters, I always get this following error after I type in
Anyone else used this beta driver? I downloaded it about a month or

We are currently on PB 8.0.2 and are debating going to PB
8.0.4. Any recommendations?
Have you looked at the fixes list associated with 8.0.3 and 8.0.4?
Without knowing what your app does on a detailed level, it'd be hard
for anyone to make a recommendation.

We are using currently using PowerBuilder 8.0. When installed it defaults
to Oracle 8.04+ Net8 as the client to talk to our Database. We are using
Windows 2000 with Oracle 8.05Net8 on our PC. Our Oracle Database is
version 184.108.40.206. We are trying to call a simple package on the database.
The package works great, but every time we bring down the database and
restart it, PowerBuilder does not recognize the package. We get an error.
We have to recompile both the package header and body. Once that has been
done, PowerBuilder recognizes the package again. Is this a backwards

Does anyone know if drivers for Adaptive server anywhere are going to be a
part of PB 8.0.2? Has it been confirmed or decided against yet?
Yes, it supports ASA 8.

...PB 8.0 and WinXPPro and installing PB 8.0 update
I have two questions:
I have a new PC with WinXPPro. I need to install PB 8 on it
(as the vendor application that we maintain uses PB 8
objects and from what I understand, you can not save PB 9
objects as PB 8 -- if this is incorrect please let me
know!), but according to the PB user manual, WinXP is not
listed as an operating system. Has anyone successfully
installed PB 8.0 on a WinXPPro machine? If so, were there

We have developped an application with PB 6.5 which included some OCX
(DynaZip, Imaging and another dedicated to secure payment with visa card).
It worked fine under PB 6.5 whatever the OS we were using (95, 98, Me, NT).
We've migrated under PB 8.5 and now we get errors trying to access external
functions of OCX.
With the dynazip OCX, the behaviour is nearly correct but arguments seem to
always be passed by value (and no more by reference).
With the OCX dedicated to secure payment, we get error accessing external

What is better to use for already existing large client-server PB app?
In terms of stability, number of unfixed serious bugs, extra features...
We encountered lockup problems on some reports for our application with
9.0.3. I did lots of testing but couldn't pin down the cause, and the users
were getting frustrated. After a while I rolled back to 9.0.2 with EBF
7610, and this seems to be very stable.
Of course, the usual disclaimers apply: your mileage may vary, etc.

...PB 6.5 Vs PB 8.0
We have an application developed using PB 6.5. Recently we started running into
problems with the build and Visual Source Safe. We are considering migrating to
PB 8.0. What are the benefits of migrating to PB 8.0? Are there any major
benefits with respect to builds. I went through some of the postings on this
newsgroup, but could not get much information. If someone has any links or
ideas, it would help us a lot.

powersoft.p...Performance issues PB 8 vs PB 6.5
We are currently running an app compiled w/ PB6.5. We recompiled using PB
8.0 (didn't apply the patch yet) and deployed the app to one persons
machine. There was a noticable difference in speed when retrieving data,
it's much slower. We are using SQL Anywhere 7.03 and have about 200 users
Is there no way around this slow down of data access? Are there some compile
switches we can use to speed things up, or is this just a fact of life w/ PB
Thanks in advance
I'm amazed that you deployed without the 8.0.1 maintenance release. We had

Are the PB drivers for Oracle 8.04 the same as for 8.05. If so, are there
any know issues that will arise. If not, where can I get the 8.05 drivers.
The O84 driver is the same. Net805 is less buggy than 804, so you should
have no problems.

find a question mark plus a dotted sign next to each object. why is this so
Do the following:
1. Uncheck "Delete PowerBuilder Generated Object Files"
2. Check "Perform Diff on Status Update"

Should I or should I not? I have 24 NW65sp8 Edir 8.8.4 in my small school
system. I see not only that 8.8.5 is out but also a FTF1 sp that looks to
fix some serious issues. My question is this. Is 8.8.4 stable enough that I
can wait or are their issues that I may not see yet that should push me
towards upgrading as soon as possible. We also use the LDAP for
authentication purposes for an Astaro firewall. The content filter for
surfing allows us to have multiple profiles for allowed surfing. And based
on who you are is what profile you get. This has been problematic in that we

Is 8.8.1 a full blown install or a patch?

Either. You can intall it on 87x or 88. It is a full blown install. SS202
is a needed patch after 881 so be sure to get it.
