OCX and PB 8 (vs PB 6.5)
We have developped an application with PB 6.5 which included some OCX
(DynaZip, Imaging and another dedicated to secure payment with visa card).
It worked fine under PB 6.5 whatever the OS we were using (95, 98, Me, NT).
We've migrated under PB 8.5 and now we get errors trying to access external
functions of OCX.
With the dynazip OCX, the behaviour is nearly correct but arguments seem to
always be passed by value (and no more by reference).
With the OCX dedicated to secure payment, we get error accessing external
With the Imaging OCX, we get error accessing external func...PB 6.5 Vs PB 8.0
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.

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 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

Is there any document to indicate any known problem in OS W2K for 6.0 and

We've upgraded from PB 6.5 to PB 8.0.3. I have converted all objects to
version 8.0.3 and compiled the application. The application runs fine on a
pc with PowerBuilder, but I seem to be missing files on the users' pc. What
files are needed in order to deploy a PowerBuilder application?
Check the "Application Techniques" manual for the list of DLLs, and
add Libjsybheap.dll to the list. (It should be mentioned in the
independent ReadMe that accompanies 8.0.3 on the Sybase web site.)

We have a large application, compiled with PB 5.04, running at about 20
Generally speaking, if a PB 5.04 app is compiled with PB 7, what changes can
the developer expect in app performance and memory usage?
I'm assuming that 5.04 app is a 16 bit app. With PB7, you're going to be
compiling 32bit apps. There are issues associated with that (I don't know
if you are calling 16 bit functions or not). The files will generally be
much larger. I haven't seen much myself that noticable as far as memory
or performance issues though.

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.

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 !

We currently have a few Powerbuilder apps that have been developed using PB
6.5. All of them use an Oracle database. Some of them make use of the pfc
libraries. Some of these apps serve as a batch interface while others are
major applications. Most of our applications are fat-client. However, we
do have one application that is a 3-tier application.
Our applications run mostly on Windows 2000, although we still have some
users using NT and possibly Win 95. We have packaged PB 6.5 Deployment
dlls and as new users need the application, they not only receive the PB

I've successfully migrated a PB 6.0 application to PB 8.0.1 Build 9056.
Yet, when I run the application I'm getting "null object" errors in numerous

I then tried to run through the debugger. After setting a breakpoint and
