I have a customer who is reporting our PowerBuilder application is suddenly disappearing from the screen. I can see there is an event in the Windows Event Log showing the application has crashed, the dll in question is fairly random, usually one from the C++ or PowerBuilder runtime.
I suspect this is because a deadlock has occured in the database and the query was killed or perhaps the connection was suddenly dropped. I am looking into it :-(
But shouldn't PowerBuilder catch these issues somewhere deep down in the runtime and at least present an error message to the user?
So my question is, is this something worth reporting as a bug to Appeon, or an enahncement, or is it just impossible?
Any thoughts are most welcome.
