I try to migrate the application from PB5.0.4 to PB6.5. After migration,
some errors occurs.

After migration, it has following errors

in w_abc instance variables

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:

I am having problems running the my application after migrating it to PB 6.5.
The application was migrated successfully. Then, I added all the new
PFC objects and PBLs as per the guidelines provided by Sybase. The full rebuild
was also successful except for a few warnings about instance variables of
local structure type being implicit in the next release. However, when I start
up the application and try to open any screen having datawindows, it crashes
with Dr. Watson's error.
Did anybody have a similar experience?
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

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 ...Building exe after migration from PB 5.0.04 to PB 6.5

...MS Word 97 embedded in PB 5.0 and PB 6.5 application
I am exploring the possibility of embedding the word interface in a
Powerbuilder MDI application (versions 5.0 and 6.5) Users will use Word to
edit and to view documents. Can this be done or can I only use Word by
opening it external of a powerbuilder application?
Yes, you can .in the window painter, controls box choose OLE ,then insert new
tab, then word document.
change its properties for the behaviour you like (linked,embedded)
try it, and also read about ole embedding and linking (I think PB have it in
the online books) to get more understanding.

You're in the wrong newsgroup. This one deals with Infomaker only. Use
PB6...PB 7.0 or PB 6.5 or PB 6.0 or PB5.04
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?).

...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)

due to problems with 6.5.0 Oracle drivers and I would appreciate
any advice on anything that got broken in that release.
