PowerBuilder Source Control Setup #2
We are setting up to use Merant PVCS Version Manager with our PowerBuilder
development. We have been looking at Sybase support technical document
1010496 (PowerBuilder Source Control Recommended Setup) to make sure that
we have a setup that allows multiple developers to develop and run at the
The detail of this document may be sufficient for experienced PB people.
For me though, terms like "distribute a copy", "add it to their copy" and
"synchronise their registered set" don't tell me enough about how to go
about it. I am hoping t...powerbuilder source control

We have found that when moving from PowerBuilder 7 build 10047 (or lower) to
PowerBuilder 7 build 10069 (or higher) that we have a problem interacting
with our datawindow objects which are under source control with Microsoft
Visual SourceSafe 6.0.
From the library painter, one can select a registered object and request,
"Compare Differences..." which of course should let you know if the object
in your pibble and the object in the source control database have any
differences. Normally, when the object is checked in and sitting on the
network baseline, one would cert...PowerBuilder 9.X Source Control
Hello to all. Wondering if I can post a question. We just
upgraded to PB9 & trying to figure out how to best take
advantage of PB's new Source Control.
Where can I find some documents, white papers, or
documentation on how to use Source Control in PB9? Would
appreciate the help. Thank You.
Start with these articles... Many folks have commented that they were
helpful in understanding the SCC changes in PB8 and 9.

Does anyone know how to tell Powerbuilder to export an object as
either UnicodeLE or UTF8 text when using source control? I have tried
both Merant & Microsoft's Team Foundaion Server with no luck.
Not sure what you're asking... Can you define "with no luck" in any more

With our current setup, we keep all application PB objects
on a shared server(call it W:\Development). We check out
from there to the developers local(C) drive, finish work and
check back in to W:. We currently use 7.0 and we are in the
process of migrating over to 9.0. With 9.0, it seems when
I check out an object to my local, the object on the shared

Hi, we are using PB 8.0.2 Build 9506 with native source control and it
doesn't work very well when we need to delete objects or to move objects
from a pbl to another.
Delete problem : if I delete an object, the other users will still have it
even after a "Get Latest Version" operation
Move problem : if I move an object, the other users will have two version of
this object, one in the old pbl and another in the new pbl... if in the list
of pbls of our target the old pbl cames before the new one, the other users
won't see the changes I made. Even worse... if we do a &qu...Powerbuilder 8, native source control
i try to set up pb8 native source control, but it does'nt work.

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

I am trying to do source control with pb native. I click on

It adds all the source control fine.
But when i try to refresh it i get this error:

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

We are currently using Powerbuilder 9 and Merant Version
Manager 8. We want to upgrade to Powerbuilder 11.5. Can
someone tell me which version of Serena/Merant Version
Manager supports PB 11.5? There was no way to access Sybase
support on this and I couldn't find any articles regarding
this. Hopefully someone can tell me??
PB simply works with the SCC API, so if your desired version of Merant
supports that API, then PB 11.5 will work with it.
In other words, there are no longer any direct interfaces between PB and the

After finally migrating to PowerBuilder 8 using PBNative for source
control we are coming to the conclusion that we really need
a Source Control System.
With only three developers I am looking for a basic system that requires
a minimum of on-going support.
Has anyone had any experience with CS-RCS from Component Software ?
Any other suggestions for a small shop solution would also be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance . Bob Gardner

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...
