PowerBuilder 12.1, build 7055
Oracle 12C
Windows 7, SP 1, 64 bit platform, 12 GB RAM, plenty of free disk space


When running as an executable, the following code works perfectly.
When running from the IDE it causes an abend in the IDE - no error message, no warning, no nothing, it just sguts down the IDE.

// Get the current set of libraries associated with this application
    ls_libraries = GetLibraryList ()
CATCH (Throwable er)
    ls_txt = "GetLibraryList Error in n_cst_rpt_liblist.of_get_library_list(). ~r~n~r~n" + er.getMessage()
    MessageBox ("GetLibraryList Error", ls_txt)

The code is located in an NVO, "n_cst_rpt_liblist" in the function "of_get_library_list()".
When stepping through this in DEBUG mode, I get to the GetLibraryList() call and attempt to step thru, and it hands for about 3 seconds then blows away the IDE completely.

Any idea's on what's causing this and how to fix it so I can stepo through this line of code in DEBUG?


Thank You,

Hi Olan;

  My framework grabs the library list and can even add or modify it. I am not having any issues with the PB run-time with this feature aspect in Appeon PB2017Rx.  My guess is that this problem is related to your PB 12.x release.

FYI ...


Regards ... Chris

Multiple versions of PB on the machine? I'd try reinstalling, then checking path etc to make sure that it's hitting that version's dlls etc and not another version.

FWIW: Working nicely for me and I have PB 11.5.1, 12.1, 12.5.1, 12.6, 2017R3 and 2019Beta#2 all installed on the same PC.
