We have just started to migrate our applications from PB 11.5 to PB 2021.  One of the PB 11.5 apps is a com+ application that creates a dll.  This dll is used to create an interop which is called by a c# web service.  When I migrated this app to PB 2021 the project file wasn't migrated.  When I go New and select Projects I don't have 'COM/COM+ Component Wizard' or 'COM/COM+ Component' which we used in 11.5 to create the application dll. 

1) Is there a different way to define a com+ project? 

2) Or is there an entirely new way that I need to go about building this app?  Are there any suggestions or advice on what I would need to do

Hi Kevin;

  What you are describing is the old PB COM Server feature. That feature was removed in PB by Sybase in PB version 12.0 series. If you were to even run PB 12.6 (last SAP release), that project option was not there. Appeon received the PB IDE baseline code in July, 2016 from SAP based on PB 12.6. Thus, the COM Server feature was never there in PB from Appeon's perspective.

  You will have to stay on PB 11.x to continue to use that feature. Moving forward though, I would look at using a different approach / feature for this functionality.

Regards ... Chris
