we have several products developed with PB2017, which in future might be build on different releases of the same PB version, especially when it comes to maintaining legacy versions of our products. So we would like to know, if it will be possible to install more than one release of an appeon PB version on a machine to develop and maintain these products.
I know we could install each release to a different directory, but how to handle the app paths in registry? And how to deploy this to our customers who might have installed more than one of our products?
Currently we are embedding an msi created with the PowerBuilder runtime packager into our installation, so I think there is no chance to install PB runtimes into different directories on customer machines.
Best solution was, if appeon renames all PB dlls to eg. pbxxx172.dll for R2.
Thank you in advance for any advice
