Using Appeon 2017 we have some legacy code which uses pipelines.

We find that  this code does not work when complied in 64bit.

Can anybody corroborate this or offer any comments?

Hi Larry;

   PipeLines are "awesome" IMHO ... I have seen this feature used 100's of times in many PB Applications!

Can you elaborate when you say "this code does not work"? Exactly what error(s) are you receiving?

Regards ... Chris

Hi Chris,

We connect to Oracle 11g using ODBC. The driver is,

We use the pipeline to refresh a local MS Access Database which is 32.64bit  (*.mdb, *.accdb). Driver is 15.00.4695.1000.

When built in 64-bit, the executable fails to start the pipe. Error code -4.

The same project when built as 32-bit successfully starts/executes pipe.

Dat retrieval is working fine in 64-bit, only the pipeline fails.

Hi Chris,

We are pipng from Oracle 11g into MS Access using ODBC.

Our Oracle 11g driver is and our MS Access driver is 15.00.4695.1000.

We get Error code -4 when piping after a 64bit build.

The pipeline works fine with a 32bit build.

Data retrieval/updating, etc works fine from the Oracle 11g as well as the MS Access databases using both 32bit as well as 64bit.
