Migration from PB 5.0.04 to PB 6.5.1
Anybody have experience in migrating PB application from 5.0.04 to
6.5.1? Is it a easy stuff, or we need to modify a lot for the
For the installation of PB 6.5.1, do I need to
install 6.0, then 6.5, and then 6.5.1, and then 6.5.1 EBF,
or I can start in the mid-way?
Is there any performance gain (or loss) for 6.5.1 vs 5.0?
Thanks in advance ...Andrew 11Jan2000
The migration should be straightforward. Back up your PB 5.0.04 source,
run the migration once and note the errors, warnings, etc... that are
generated from the migration. Fix those in your backed ...migrating from pb 5.0 -> pb 6.0/6.5 any pothole

...PB 7.0 or PB 6.5 or PB 6.0 or PB5.04
We are using PB 5.04 Enterprise at this moment and are almost happy (uch)
Because we don't programming applications for the Internet (maybe in the
near future) we haven't upgraded to version 6.0 and 6.5. Now we are confused
what to do, keeping the old and 'stable' version (5.04) or upgrading to a
newer version. Are there features in the newer versions wich make it a
'must' to upgrade. What are this features. Or are there reasons to stay on
5.04 (buggy newer versions?).

There are no specific problems. First make a backup of your PB5.0.4 source
and then migrate it to 6.5. If you get errors during the migration, repair
them in the 5.0.04 sources and migrate again.

I am now working with PB 6.5.1, PFC 6.5 and Cornerstone 6.5.
What is best way to go:
Migrate whole application including PFC*.PBL 6.5 to 7 or replace PFC*.PBL from

Any documents, links or readings about how to eliminate Cornerstone and only use

Why would you want to do that?
You do have the source to Cornerstone, right?
Or did they distribute their framework only as PBDs?

The answer you already got from Brian Dick looks like the right
answer. Did that not work for you?
Let us know,

I am having problems running the my application after migrating it to PB 6.5.
The application was migrated successfully. Then, I added all the new
PFC objects and PBLs as per the guidelines provided by Sybase. The full rebuild
was also successful except for a few warnings about instance variables of
local structure type being implicit in the next release. However, when I start
up the application and try to open any screen having datawindows, it crashes
with Dr. Watson's error.
Did anybody have a similar experience?
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
T...PB 6.5 Migrated from PB 5.0 Application deployment
I recently migrated a PFC/PFE application from PB 5.04 to 6.5. I have
compiled it down to p-code and am able to run the application from both the
developement environment & from the EXE on the machine that has PB 5.04
installed on it. When I move the application and the PB 6.5 deployment DLL's
to a machine without PB 5.04 on it, it starts asking me for the whole set of
PB 5.04 deplymnt DLL's. It's like there is some sort of dependance on PB
5.04 that I didn't break during the migration process.
My OS is NT 4.0 SP4 and the application path includes the app/pbd'...PB 5.0.03 and PB 5.0.04
Do I need to install PB 5.0.03 and after PB 5.0.04 or I can just install PB
You can just install 5.0.04. Make a backup of your pbls prior to
installing 5.0.04 in case you need to revert back to the current version.

Recently we got PB 8.0 upgrade version and we are planning to move from our

---== Posted via the PFCGuide Web Newsreader ==---
The dupliquer function is defined in an ancestor class and overridden or
overloaded in a descendent class. The descendent class definition uses a
different return type.
1) Open the ancestor and note the dupliquer return type.

I found a difference between the two versions of PB. This is a difference
that doesn't cause a compile or runtime error but the line of code fails to
work as expected. :(
In PB 5.0.04 the code is:
icc_multi.of_facility_get_secure_facs( this ).fac_urn
Where icc_multi.of_facility_get_secure_facs( this ) returns a structure that
has been created in the structure painter (not an object structure)
What I found is that in PB 6.5.444 the code fails to return the structure
and also there is no compile or runtime error to indicate a problem.
