Moving from PowerBuilder 6.5 to PowerBuilder 10
I have an application developed in PB6.5 and due to changing
requirements application has to be switched to PB10.
There when I am trying to regenerate the contents of my PBL,
it is giving error stating:
C0042 : cannot compile without valid database signon.
This error is coming for few windows but not for the
functions I have made in my pbl. It is working perfectly
fine for pb6.5.
Can you please help me on this.
Thanks in advance.

I have Powerbuilder 6.5 build 444 installed, but the
application I'm now supporting was built using 6.5.1. Is
there anywhere I can get the upgrade to 6.5.1?
When I go to the downloads area of this site it asks me for
client support which I don't think I have?
Sorry to say .. but, I think the only PB 6.x copies are in the Smithsonian.
The only hope you might have is through Sybase Technical Support.

Our shop is considering going from version 6.5 to version
10.0. The upgrade would also include using the new pfc
libraries. On average, how long should it take to upgrade
an application with 25 pbls, of which 15 are the
PFC,Corporate, and PFC entension layers.
I'm not exactly sure what you're after, but the vast majority of your time
should probably be spent, IMHO, on testing and debugging. You're changing the
foundations of your software; any assumptions about what works and what doesn't
should be thrown out (at least in QA theory). You're the b...Powerbuilder 5 to Powerbuilder 10

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,

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'm Freddy from Mumbai, India. It has come to the attention of our

buyers of 6.0. The only problem is that i don't know the site from where
i could download it. The ressellers here are highly uncooperative in
giving out this kind of info. I would greatly appreciate it if someone
could tell me about the site.

Hi, were are investigating the process of upgrading
powerbuilder 105 to powerbuilder 11.5. are there any steps
to watch out for. my initial plan is to backup the current
source. Copy the source to a temp location. Perform an
upgrade of PB10.5 to 11.5 and 'upgrade' the source.
Does this sound about right at all?

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
lot of bugs?
If you have any hope of running the applications in the future on XP, W2003
or soon to be W2006 (LongHorn) you will have to jump over to UniCode - ie

In our original 6.5 encryption code we have the line:
b = Asc (String(bl_byte))
Which works fine. It does not work at all in 10.5.1. So we used the
b = Asc (String(bl_byte,EncodingAnsi!))
This works fine but is returning a different ASCII value. I have tried
the different Encoding values and haven't got it to work. Any
suggestions would be helpful.
I experienced a similar problem. Look at the AscA function instead.

Apparently there's some data conversion issues that differ from PowerBuilder
10.5.2 and 11.5.1 (builds listed in subject). The following mini scrip
results in different returned values:
lb_test = 48
ld_test = Dec(lb_test)
In PowerBuilder 10.5.2, the messagebox displays the value "48". In
PowerBuilder 11.5.1 the messagebox displays the value "0.48". It appears
that in PB 11.5.1, it's dividing the result by 100 for some reason. It
appears to be a bug, just wanted to ve...Migration to PowerBuilder 6.5 from Powerbuilder 4.0

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
