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.
My OS is NT 4.0 SP4 and the application path includes the app/pbd'...PB 6.0 Deployment DLLs
Where can I get the list of deployment DLLs for 6.0?

For 5.0 there was a list in an appendix of the PowerBuilder User's Guide.
I haven't looked yet with PB 6.0 but you might try there.

We have an application developed using PB 6.5. Recently we started running into
problems with the build and Visual Source Safe. We are considering migrating to
PB 8.0. What are the benefits of migrating to PB 8.0? Are there any major
benefits with respect to builds. I went through some of the postings on this
newsgroup, but could not get much information. If someone has any links or
ideas, it would help us a lot.

I have designed an app using PB 6.5.1 and feel quite confortable to write
another app using this version of Power Buulder. I am aware that there have
been many other releases after this but have heard many developers complain
about not being stable and so forth. I can't say how true this is cause I
never bothered to update to later releases. I recently got a contract for a
new app and quite likely will be using Power Biulder but I am wondering if
am cheating myself by not trying to upgrade myself to a later release of

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 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...PB 6 and PB 6.5 Upgrade to PB 8.0 in OS W2K Professional
PB 6 and PB 6.5 crash in OS W2K Professional:
I notice that I need to upgrade to 6.5.1 as well as EBF 1299. However, I am
only able to get 6.5.1. Where can I get the optionally patch EBF 1299?
Is there any document to indicate any known problem in OS W2K for 6.0 and

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, 188.8.131.520 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...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?).
What is doing the rest of the Powerbuilder world???
...[MIGRATION QUESTION] PB 6.5.1 vs PB 8.0.1
i have a question :
We have developped a startegic application for one of our customer.
We've developped it using PB 6.5.1 (on Windows NT 4.0)
we plan to migrate this application to PB 8.0.1.
Does anyone have heard about particuliar problems about PB 8 ?
What is your opinion about this new version ? It seems to be faster...
Is it stable enough w/ OCXs, etc ?
Thanks in advance for any answer !
In Sybase.Public.EAServer.PowerBuilder I answered another question regarding
PB4 to PB8. See that posting for further detai...Running PB 6.5.1 on Localized Deployment Kit of 6.5.0
Because the Localized Deployment Kit for PB 6.5.1 is not yet available (am I
wrong?), I'am planning to build my application (EXE + PBDs) on PB 6.5.1 and then
use the �old� Localized Deployment Kit of PB 6.5.0 to execute it.
Does someone already try it?
Do you think it will work?
I would not recommend this... I've done it in the past and have had
(seemingly) random GPFs and "Internal PowerBuilder Error, contact Sybase"
errors. If you decide to do this, test, test, test and then test some more.

I found a difference between the two versions of PB. This is a difference
that doesn't cause a compile or runtime error but the line of code fails to
work as expected. :(
In PB 5.0.04 the code is:
icc_multi.of_facility_get_secure_facs( this ).fac_urn
Where icc_multi.of_facility_get_secure_facs( this ) returns a structure that
has been created in the structure painter (not an object structure)
What I found is that in PB 6.5.444 the code fails to return the structure
and also there is no compile or runtime error to indicate a problem.
