I have a user function object used to open a web browser that causes a crash when deploying the project but only when the option to create machine code and a .dll library is selected.  Deployment with Pcode as well as machine code without a .dll library will deploy without issue.


The cause seems to be tied to a call to GetContextService and the code works as expected in runtime:

inet iinet_base

GetContextService("inet",iinet_base) //comment out for successful deployment


if isvalid(iinet_base) then destroy iinet_base


Anyone have similar experiences or know of any workarounds?


I have attached files for duplication.



Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: PB170.EXE
Application Version:
Application Timestamp: 5b55ee46
Fault Module Name: PBCMP170.dll
Fault Module Version:
Fault Module Timestamp: 5b55ef1a
Exception Code: c0000005

Hi Jerrod;

   That looks like old Jaguar (EAServer) way of coding.

In newer and especially native, web & mobile PB Apps ... try this instead:

  • inet   iinet_base
  • iinet_base = CREATE iNet
  • iinet_base.HyperlinkToURL("http://www.appeon.com")



Regards ... Chris
