My migrated project deployed successfully, its stored in "D:\MyApp\" . It runs properly within that folder.

However, when I move the deployed files to "C:\Production" folder, it fails to execute and generates Windows event log application error.

What's wrong?

please provide more info, I tried the same operations on my machine (build the app 32/64 bit, copy .exe and .pbd to a different folder) and had no issue.
- What is your env? My guess is you are running on a 64bit Win10.
- Did you compile myapp.exe in 32 or 64 bit?
- Are you moving the executable to c:\production on the *same* machine?
This error occurs in PBVM170.DLL and might be caused by incompatibility between 32bit app and 64bit O.S. 
I would suggest you move the app to a different box by bundling all dependencies with the Appeon -> PB Runtime packager utility.



I think the problem lies on the OLE DB driver you are using to connect to MSSQL.

Once again, you must clarify your env, what version of MSSQL? There are many versions available but drivers change accordingly.

PB 2017 supports the SQL Server (up to 2016) native client (ver 11.0) as well as ODBC.

Please verify the DB connection using one of the above and compile again the project.

Its a MSSQL 2012 SP3.

I doubt its related to MSSQL driver, as the same executable runs without error on the same machine connecting to the same MSSQL just located on deployed folder. 

Edit: I am sorry I moved those deployed EXE and PBD once again and the application starts successfully today. I didn't change any setting as I recalled.

One possible cause is that there are already existing files in your c:\production folder and the copy was not able to successfully overwrite some of them (especially the exe file when it's running). So there were incompatibilities.
