We use PB6.5.
We would want to use a DLL create from PB in a PB application.
We compiled an a PBL as DLL.
After we tried to use DLL in a user object external, but without success.
How can we do to use DLL create from PB or use in a new PB application some

Any help will be appreciated.

Our company is going to upgrade PowerBuilder. Currently we are using version
7, and we are going to upgrade either to version 9 or 10.
Does anyone have any recommendations if we should go for version 9 or 10?
What is the current release of version 10, and is it stable or is there a

If you have any hope of running the applications in the future on XP, W2003
