This morning I was pleased to find that PB2019 R2 is available for download.
Note for who needs powerserver 32bit:
Install powerserver as 32 bit:
In previous versions of powerbuilder, if you wanted to install powerserver as 32 bit, you had to first edit the product.ini file and add this to the [Product] section:
This is no longer needed and different now:
- Download the offline installer
- When you install PB using "autorun.exe", don't install powerserver.
- When finished, go to the folder ...\PowerServerPBEdition-2020-2323-x86-EN and run setup.exe as administrator.
Why do we need powerserver as 32 bit install?
Because we have visual ActiveX controls made in .net which we paste on a window in the PB IDE. Since the PB IDE is 32 bit only, our ActiveX has to be 32 bit. They wouldn't work in powerserver 64 bit.
Edit: I've been told (on this same post) that I'm wrong. Things should work, even when you've pasted a 32 bit visual activex on a window in the PB IDE. I definitely have to try, but for now don't want to state the wrong thing, so strike through applied :)
