Hi, I am sure this is a simple quesiton and that i have just missed something with the new verions.

I have installed pb2022 r3 on my machine.

I have compiled my app on it, however when i run it on the machine that I created it on it comes up with a missing PBVM error.

What should i have installed as well to run it on this machine ? and what paths should it have ?

M-code 32 bit

Hi Andrew;

That explains your issue as the M-Code compile does not generate or use an <App name>.XML file used to locate the PB runtime. Only P-Code compiles support that .XML feature.

In your case, you'll need to add the location of the PB runtime to your System Path, create a short-cut that includes the PB runtime location, create a BAT file that runs your App EXE & sets the location for the PB runtime or you could copy all the PB runtime DLLs to your PB App's exe folder.

Hi Andrew;

  Did you compile your PB App into a P-Code or an M-Code based EXE?
