migrating from pb 5.0 -> pb 6.0/6.5 any pothole
I am looking for any know potholes to avoid in migrating several PB 5.0
application to PB 6.0/6.5
using an Oracle 7.3 data base on Win 95 client?
Take a look at http://techinfo.sybase.com/css/techinfo.nsf/DocID/ID=47787
Also, do your own search on 'mirgrating' and you should come up with a few

We are using PB 5.04 Enterprise at this moment and are almost happy (uch)
Because we don't programming applications for the Internet (maybe in the
near future) we haven't upgraded to version 6.0 and 6.5. Now we are confused
what to do, keeping the old and 'stable' version (5.04) or upgrading to a
newer version. Are there features in the newer versions wich make it a
'must' to upgrade. What are this features. Or are there reasons to stay on
5.04 (buggy newer versions?).
What is doing the rest of the Powerbuilder world???

...PB 6.5.0 vs PB 6.5.1 with datastores
I began developing a large application using PB 6.5.0 several months ago.
For various reasons, we had to migrate the code to 6.5.1. After performing
some recursion testing, we noticed that many operations involving datastores
( create, insert rows, update, destroy ) began generating random GPF/Page
Faults. The code itself hasn't changed and was verified in PB 6.5.0 via
extensive testing. This is a hard one to pinpoint since the crashing is
somewhat random. I've read some posts that indicate that certain dot
notation can be problematic. All objects were fully rebuilt...Experiences with PB 6.5.1 vs. PB 6.5.0
Any people run into any problems with 6.5.1 (+ EBF 1163)
that were not there in vanilla 6.5.0.
We have to migrate very late in the game (1 week before going live!)
due to problems with 6.5.0 Oracle drivers and I would appreciate
any advice on anything that got broken in that release.

I have a client who needs to move from an initial PB 5.0 release (no patches
applied) to a newer version of PB. This is a small internal application but
they would like to open it up via the internet in the future. They are
currently running on a SQL Anywhere DB but would be looking to change that
I don't have any hands on experience with PB 7.x but from what I heard and
read it hasn't been that great. I've been using PB 6.5 since build 444 and
was thinking of recommending that they make the move to 6.5 first and then
wait for PB 8.0 later this year.

I have a question about compatibility between PB native driver and oracle
sql*net for different versions of Power Builder.
We have 3 applications developed in 3 different versions of Power Builder:
5.00.0.0, 18.104.22.1680 and 7.0.10047
All of them are using the Oracle Client 8.1.6 and accessing via PB Native
Driver to Oracle. Although this is combination is not supported, the person
in charge of the PB part tested this combination and decided to upgrade
the oracle client from version 7.3.X to 8.1.6. So far it is working
properly for us.
Now, if it is decided to move to ora...Migrating from PB 5.0.02 to PB 6.5...

This sounds like a goofy question but I am migrating some PFC dependant
applications from PB 5.0.04 to PB 6.5 and was going to reset the library
list to the new PB 6.5 PFC libraries, but I can't find them in 6.5. Where
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:

Why would you want to do that?
You do have the source to Cornerstone, right?
Or did they distribute their framework only as PBDs?
...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.

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 ...SQLANY50 error after upgraded from PB 5.0 to PB 6.5
I upgraded my application which use SQLANY50+WIN98 from PB 5.0 to PB 6.5.

it on the same PC, the following error message appeared:

This is likely a pathing issue. There's a faxline document available at

should help you out.
