powerbuilder 7.x on NT with Service Pack 2
We've recently installed Service Pack 2 on some machines in the office, and
now when we run our pb app, when it calls an ocx (written in C++) its
unable to find the object.
I don't know if this is a pb(7.0.3) or a VC++ problem. The list of fixes in
SP2 is huge, so don't really know where to begin.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
Try to re-register the OCX using regsvr32.exe.

I 'm trying to determine the feasibility of an integration effort
between our application and a partner company's application.
The problem is this: up until this point, our company was using the
standard PowerBuilder for Windows; that is to say, it uses ANSI
strings. The application we want to integrate with is COM-based, and
uses UNICODE strings. Nearest as I can tell, there are two options,
neither of which is adequately explained in the documentation. Any help
on either of the following would be appreciated:
1) The 'ToUnicode/FromUnicode' functions ...PowerBuilder application as a Windows NT 4.0 Service
I am trying to transform my PB 5.0 application into a Windows NT
service. My application opens a window, create a transport object and
starts Listening. I would like this application to be installed as a
service (for remote maintenance).
I tried to use the INSTSRV.EXE program without success.
Do I have to use the 32 SDK functions ?
Any help ?
Why not create it as an OLE Server and then register it.

I have developed an application that sends mail via a Microsoft Exchange
Server using the MAPI commands within Powerbuilder. The application works
fine under Windows 95 and sends the mail as expected.
When I attempt to run the application on any Windows NT 4.0 machine I
receive a Microsoft Exchange error with the message. 'Your Microsoft
Exchange Server is unavailable'.
I have attempted to use the MAPI example provided with Powerbuilder and also
receive the same error message.
Can anybody help?
That usually means ...powerbuilder 6.5 window plugin no longer works in IE5 Service Pack 2
Does anyone know a solution to the problem that the Powerbuilder 6.5 window
plugin does not work due to changes Microsoft have made in IE5 Service Pack
2 - IE6 will cause the same problem
There is an article at
htttp://rosetta.berkeley.edu/wwwboard/messages/128.html that explains what
Microsoft have gone and done but basically my web based application does
not work and I have people complaining.

I have a client who is having this problem that he starts the database

I have been running apps built on PB 4.x/5.x for *ages*, also after
upgrading my Windows95 to W98. However, yesterday I swapped the hard drive
for a larger one, thus I did a fresh Win98 install, *not* an upgrade. I.e.
no remainders from Win95 around. This time, PB4.x/5.x install OK, but refuse
to start. 4.x reports "a device connected to your system is not functioning
properly" and 5.x reports "initialization failure. Cannot start". This is a
*bit* annoying, since I rely on the PB4 app to pay my bills which are soon
overdue... Anyone with similar experience? Grateful...Powerbuilder 6.x connectivity to ODBCJT32.DLL (ver 4.x)??
I'm using PB 6.x and having problems connecting to datasources that use
ODBCJT32.DLL (ver 4.x). If the odbcjt32.dll file is replaced with an older
version (ver 3.5x) then it works fine. Is there a way around this
connectivity issue without replacing the file? Is there a section in the
PBODBC60.INI file that can be added to help...and if so, does anyone have
that information? Are there other issues to be concerned about?
Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated.
...PB 4 and Windows NT 4.0 service pack 5
We have a pressing problem here ... having upgraded some clients to Windows
NT Service Pack 5 (to prepare for Y2K), our most important finance
application has started behaving strangely. When a dropdown list box
datawindow column loses focus, the column is blanked out. I suspect the
PB4dknti depolyment kit is not fully compatible with the new NT service
The deployment kit is dated 03-04-96. Does anyone have a newer version they
could share with us, or do you have a workaround ? Thanks in advance,

Hi, out there
I have ASA 6.03 running as a service on an NT 4 machine ...
when the user wants to reboot his machine, ASA always comes up with
a message that ASA is still running and asks if it can shutdown...
how can i prevent the message from poping up..and interupting the reboot
In the service control panel, uncheck the INTERACT with DESKTOP checkbox.
If you want to see the console, use dbwatch.exe ( on sqla 5.5, don't know
the name for asa6)

The IS department here just updated some of our users machines to Window Me,

TIA for any information on this.
AFAIK This is not a supported platform.
According to the Installation Guide, NT 4 or higher or Win 95 or Win98 are
the required platforms. If you have a problem specific to WinME, you will
