s it possible to do a bit wise operation in SQLA?
...PB 16 bit and PB 32 bit and API calls
I am trying to do a API call for a fingerprint reader. I have done all
of the global declarations and I am sure all variables are mapped correctly.
I don't get any errors from the function I am calling into, however I do get
a PB error on the Global function I declared. The error is telling me that
there is an invalid stack pointer. This function returns the number of the
device which was created which is essentially a pointer. My question is
this. Since I am running PB 7 which is 32 bit is it possible that if these

I'm trying to work a binary file on PB, but i must work it bit to bit (not
Byte to Byte).
Does anyone know if there is a way to do this in PB?
(I'm currently using PB 7)
Thanks a lot,
Write your bit functions in a C .dll and call it as an external function
call. That is easy and fast.

...PB missing bit-wise or(||) and and(&&)?
I have set up several "constant long ic_bitpos_1 = 1, _2 = 2, _3 = 4",
etc... and need to use
them in a comparison against another long int with a cumulative value:
Here's the old VB code:
Select Case at_Right_Type
Security_Right = ((ao_Group_Rights.Rights_Codes And
at_Right_Mask) <> 0)
and the new PB code:
choose case ii_bit_position
lb_result = (il_group_value or ic_bitpos_1 <> 0)
lb_result = (il_group_value or ic_bitpos_2 <> 0)
lb_result = false // be safe...64 bit cpu // 64 bit Os version // 64 bit powerbuilder?
Does anyone know if Powebuilder is available in 64 bit?
A 64-bit version of PB does not (yet) exist.

Well, I am glad to know that I'm not the only one having 32bit vs 16bit
problems. We have a rather small app (6 pbls / an average of 4 objects per
pbl). We are compiling this app as a 16 executable using PB5 32bit. The
compile is good (I guess) but when I start the app I get an external
reference error when the app tries to use a non visual residing in one of
the DLLs. Now I have done all of the things that any good PB developer would
do (specify all PBLs as PBDs, make sure all the DLLs are in the same
directory as the EXE, make sure the EXE has a different name as the DL...PowerBuilder application icon always 4-bit (even though it includes 8-bit and 24-bit images as well)
I have created an icon for our application based upon the instruction found
on Microsoft's MSDN website
/winxpicons.asp). Per the instructions, the icon file includes a total of 9
images--three of each size arranged in increasing color depth (4-bit, than
8-bit, then 24-bit).
I then specify the new icon in the Application Properties in PowerBuilder.
Both in the development environment and on all the windows, it only uses the
4-bit icon. If, however, I build the application, the created EXE, when

I'm sure many of you are running installations that will help me with
some questions, so here goes:
I'm currently still running 32-bit versions of Windows (mainly XP Pro)
on my machines (most of which are at least 5 years old). I'm
considering upgrading to a more modern machine (probably i7 920), and
switching to a 64-bit OS (would start with Vista 64-bit, then move to
Win7 64-bit when it's released -- though am considering moving straight
to the Win7 RC version).
If running a 64-bit OS, does anyone have problems running RAD Studio in
that environment? Do ...Creating 16-bit apps in 32-bit PB
Can ANYONE create a 16-bit app in 32-bit PB?
Sure. 16 bit machine code EXE/DLLs are created using the 32 bit version of
PB 5.0. 16 bit p-code EXE/PBDs however, must be created using the 16 bit
version of PowerBuilder.

I am trying to create a 16 bit executable with the speed option enabled
on NT4 and PB18.104.22.168. I believe there is a dll problem that is not
letting the 16 bit OS run the executable. Would anyone have any
suggestions for this. If you need any other information, I can also
supply that. I have tried this many ways and get different errors for
...32-bit & 16-bit PB apps
Is anyone successfully running a PB 5.0.0x 32-bit PB app and a 16-bit PB
app simultaneously on the same machine?
Note: There were fixes in 5.0.03 (changes in internal class names)
that allowed this to happen. After this change, the class names
between 16 and 32-bit were different, so could be loaded at the same
time. Anything previous to 5.0.03, this is a known shortfall.
However, be aware that the change in class names may break some
testing tools' scripts built in previous versions (not the good
testing tools, but some... ). The good testing tools know how to

I am trying to build a "bridge" between a PB program (originally a
32-bit .exe) and a 32-bit DLL (I can't change this to 16-bit); both work
flawlessly when run as 32-bit under Windows 95.
Now... when I try to convert the PB app to 16-bit, and call my bridge
pgm (a 16-bit .dll compiled with the Watcom C/C++ compiler v 10.?), I
get a message "error calling external function..." when I try to access
the function (the .dll loads fine). I have checked the spelling; I
think the prototypes are correct, I have looked for samples (to no

What would be the implication of doing so? Thank you.
