Powerbuilder 8, native source control
i try to set up pb8 native source control, but it does'nt work.
is this the right way ? (the new doc is'nt very good)
1) Storage location : this is where the server files reside
2) Local path : copy of server files, and this is the checkout files
3) username - just any username...
when i view objects in library painter, the objects is marked with a dot
and a question mark.

but after checking in, the dot and question mark shows up again.

We are moving from PB 6.5 to PB 8.03 and going to PVCS VM for version
control. I've created a script to export Powerbuilder .sr* and create
..pbg files in PBL subdirectories. The script runs sucessfully and
creates all of the .sr* and .pbg files in their respective pbl
subdirectories. I then run a PCLI command line addfiles command
script to add the files to PVCS VM. This completes successfully and
creates the archives correctly. I then open Powerbuilder and open the
respective workspace. PB does not show the code as being added to
source control. Is there some sort of magic I...source control with PB Native in powerbuilder 11
I am trying to do source control with pb native. I click on

It adds all the source control fine.

When i try to run my program i get this error:

All source control system have been unable to export and re

Can anyone point me to some comprehensive documentation regarding setting
up PVCS source control for a PowerBuilder 8 project. We recently migrated
from PB 6.5 to PB 8 and, I've been able to set up the project but, I'm
missing a few "pieces of the puzzle".
For example... in PVCS we check out our pbls to a common network drive. We
then copy those onto each developers workstation. The network pbls have a
workspace and, each developer has a workspace and all workspaces point to
the same pvcs project.
How do we keep the common pbls on the network in synch wit...Migrating PowerBuilder 8 to Powerbuilder 11

If you're object (or any related object) failed to migrate
successfully, you won't be able to edit it in a regular painter;
you'll have to Edit Source to modify it.

may help. The methodology there would allow you to identify...powerbuilder source control

What is the difference in Powerbilder 9.0 and 8.0?
I would like to point out that the Appeon newsgroup is monitored by Sybase
and Appeon engineering staff who are very knowledgeable about Appeon issues.
Question that are purely PowerBuilder-related are best answered by the staff
and users of the PowerBuilder newsgroup: sybase.public.powerbuilder.XXXX.
Please post to the appropriate newsgroup so you receive the help you desire.

Is it possible to use ActiveX controls with PB8?
Yes, throught the OLECustomControl.
- Joe Slawsky (NOSPAMFORME_jslawsky@planetdx.com)
Yes, possible to use, but two limitations:
1. PB uses something called "late binding" which means the attrs
and methods of the control are unknown until execution time. So
you get runtime errors and not compile errors.
2. PB uses something called "license caching". This means that

There shouldn't be any problem with multiple versions of PB on the same
machine - different folder and dll names. Many of us have run 3 or 4
different versions concurrently!

In PowerBuilder 8, is it necessary to have the enterprise

You need to have enterprise to use native drivers. Desktop only
allows you to use a limited set of ODBC drivers, Professional allows
you to use an ODBC drivers, and Enterprise allows you to use the

...Migrating from PowerBuilder 6.5 to PowerBuilder 8.0
We are doing a feasibility study of migrating a PFC based
PowerBuilder Application from v6.5 to v8.0. This application is
heavily PFC depended and also includes many custom based core layers.
If anybody has done (PFC based) powerbuilder migration prior kindly suggest
the best approach on the following.
1) How to successfully migrate from PowerBuilder 6.5/PFC - PowerBuilder 8.0/PFC.
2) How to fix/resolve post migration errors etc... .
Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.
Thanks and Regards

we are using Powerbuilder in a team development environment using
The setup is the same as in PB6 anf before - one central set of
libraries on the server and working libraries locally. This
is the same as the recommended setup for PB7 <= 5031.
In the document "Powerbuilder Source Control Recommended Setup" I found
on the Sybase site a new kind of setup supported by
pb7 7017 and above.
Can someone explain me this setup, esp. by using VisualSourceSafe, more
in detail? Which kind set of object I have to register? How

I heard a long time ago that distributed PowerBuilder support was going to
be dropped in PowerBuilder 8.0 in lieu of using EAServer. Is that true?
When is PowerBuilder 8.0 coming out.
Target for PB8 is Q1 2001. DPB is not being enhanced but the
capabilities will still be there.
