I'm going to migrate from Powerbuilder 4.0 to Powerbuilder 6.5 soon.
I would like to know if I have to migrate previously to Powerbuilder 5.0,

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

What is the difference in Powerbilder 9.0 and 8.0?
I would like to point out that the Appeon newsgroup is monitored by Sybase
and Appeon engineering staff who are very knowledgeable about Appeon issues.
Question that are purely PowerBuilder-related are best answered by the staff
and users of the PowerBuilder newsgroup: sybase.public.powerbuilder.XXXX.
Please post to the appropriate newsgroup so you receive the help you desire.

We are having some issues while trying to upgrade from PB
6.5 to PB 9.0.1 The database is Sybase .I was hoping if you
could post in any usergroups
There is a window w_child inherited from w_parent.The
datasource of this dw_1 is a Stored Procedure that runs in
Sybase ASE 12.5
In ue_1 of w_parent there is a dw_1.retrieve(arg1,arg2).
ue_1 of w_child extends ue_1of w_parent. In ue_1 of w_child
the code checks the condition dw_1.rowcount() >0 based on
which it decides on the execution flow.
While running the application, no rows are getting
re...Converting current code (Powerbuilder 6.5.1) to newest version of Powerbuilder?
Hi, can anyone tell me what you have to do in order to convert existing code
(applications) (created under Powerbuilder 6.5.1) to the newest version of
Powerbuilder (at least PB 8) and what it would take to use that code
(applications) on the web, I do understand that the newer versions of PB
have a web datawindow, is that all we would need to use to move our
applications to the web?
Look in this newsgroup aroung 01/08/02 for "Applications on the Web"
(started by "John") for a good stream of information.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 am working on migrating the existing PB6.5.1 application to PB8.0.1 Build
9056 on Win 2000 SP1 system. The migration of the application went fine
without any problems. After the migration is successful I tried to full
rebuild the application(target as in PB8), it results in application being
terminated(GPF). But if i choose Incremental rebuild, it the build works
fine. The same happens when I try migration on Win 95 system too.
Does anybody out here came across such a problem during migration? Thanks
in advance for your help/advice.
