Powerbuilder 7.02 and MS SQLServer 2000
We are looking at migrating current powerbuilder 6.51 applications to
Powerbuilder 7.0.2 (7.0.2 due to version compatibility to a 3rd party
software package that will be migrated at the same time)
In addition to the Powerbuilder migration, there is the possible move from
Microsoft SQL Server 6.5 to SQL Server 2000. My question is, are there
native SQL Server 2000 database drivers, will the SQL Server 7.0 drivers
handle the database connection, or is there another solution I'm
I've looked through the news groups, and seen many mixed feelings regarding

Has anyone successfully deployed a PowerBuilder 7.0 application using

I am having difficulty with blobs and resultsets being correctly handled
and properly returned from Unix to Windows.
If in fact this is a Sybase issue, how does one escalate?
The problems I was encountering went away once I upgraded the PowerBuiler
on the development machine to Version 7.0.3 build 10135 to match the PB VM

I am trying to find official documentation on the Sybase web site as to
which version of Powerbuilder will work with Windows 2000, without any luck.
Does anyone know where such information can be found?
I believe PB v7.04 and PB 8.0 support Windows 2000.

We are trying to run a powerbuilder application on Windows 2000 Server
running windows terminal services.
When the application starts we get the error Null Object Reference for the
instantiation of pfc_app_manager. This exact same executable runs fine on
Windows NT and Windows 98.
Note..we are running Powerbuilder 7.02 build 8033.
It sounds like it can't find all the pbd's in your library path. Make sure
all your pbd's are accounted for and in the same directory as the exe.

I work for a company called Stanley Associates, and we have independent
applications that were created under powerbuilder. Up until recently we had
been using PB7 without any problems or compilation errors. Upon creating a
new workspace, adding a target, and doing the initial rebuild, we ran into
several information statements and even some errors in our
migration/compilation. Silly statements like window name is invalid due to
global variable of same type, or incomatible types in assignment.

I have loaded an application that is written in PB 7.0 to a laptop
with Windows 2000 and am having strange problems. This same
application is loaded on multiple desktop PCs (all with Windows 95 or
98) and works fine. The main problem is an Application error that
comes up frequently in different parts of the application ( "The
Instruction at "0x77e2bf4b" referenced at "0x00000000". The memory
could not be "read"). This immediately terminates the program. Do you
think that PowerBuilder 7.0 is not compatable with Windows 2000??

Was PowerBuilder 7.03 ever certified against Windows 2000
Service Pack 4? If not what was the latest Windows 2000
Service Pack that PowerBuilder 7.03 was tested against?
Until we moved to PB9, that was the configuration that we deployed with and
had no issues.

My customer installed the office 2000 on an NT workstation
where my PB app was running, and now the app doesn't work on data entry
fields . So Our office services applied a fix pack for office 2000 and
everything started working. But we made some changes to application and
deployed it again on the client PC, the problem seems to have started
again. Now we have the fix pack already in place. Has anyone heard of
any compatibility problems.
We are currently on Powerbuilder 7.0.2 Build 8024.
Any help would be appreciated ...
