External functions in PowerBuilder 5.0 DLLs
I once received a reply to a problem I posted in this discussion group
in which I found out that some of PowerBuilder 5.0.x's DLLs have
functions in them which can be called by a PowerBuilder programmer by
declaring them as external functions...
I would like to know if anyone has a complete list of all the functions
within the DLLs, as well as some documentation for each function, which
can be declared as external functions in PowerBuilder. I could really
use the information because I sometimes need to call API functions in
PowerBuilder but sometimes that still isn't enough....PowerBuilder 5.0 to 126.96.36.199
I hope this the correct venue for this question. I have a fresh install of
PB 5.0 and I need to upgrade it to 188.8.131.52. I have found plenty of
reference/downloads to 184.108.40.206 on the sybase website, but I need to go from
5.0 to 220.127.116.11.
Where can I download the correct patch/upgrade?
18.104.22.168 is no longer available. You can choose between 5.0.03 (bug infested)
and 5.0.04 (stable).

We are doing a feasibility study of migrating a PFC based
PowerBuilder Application from v6.5 to v8.0. This application is
heavily PFC depended and also includes many custom based core layers.
If anybody has done (PFC based) powerbuilder migration prior kindly suggest
the best approach on the following.
1) How to successfully migrate from PowerBuilder 6.5/PFC - PowerBuilder 8.0/PFC.
2) How to fix/resolve post migration errors etc... .
Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.
Thanks and Regards

...PowerBuilder Upgrade 5.0 -> 6.0/6.5 for PowerFrame?
Has anyone upgraded PowerFrame (Metasolv's old framework) from PB 5.0
to PB 6.0/6.5? Did you run into any major problems? ANY upgrade
advice (PowerFrame or not) would be appreciated. Should I just wait
for 7.0? What's the latest on its release?
Please respond here or email to email@example.com.
Thanks in advance,
(The last living person not using PFC. IT'S NOT MY CHOICE!)
Have you tried calling MetaSolv? I know that they dropped support for
PowerFrame in favor of Cornerstone but they may still be willing to help.

I able to connect on this database with PB 5.0.04 in 32 bits with the driver

The message is: "DBMS O73 is not supported in your current installation."
I installed SQL*Net2.3.4.02 in client and I add the appropriate driver in
PowerBuilder to connect with O73.
The file PBO73050.DLL is placed c:\PWRS\SYS in PB 16 bits and is in my path.
Does anyone know what is wrong?
