I downloaded the new PB2019 R3 beta and have been trying out the new C/S deployment:
1 - How do I configure a remote Server"? I think I have to add FTP protocol/role, but some instructions for noobs would be nice. (or even better, powerbuilder setting IIS up so it would work on remote).
2 - Using "localhost" we have to disable any antivirus to deploy. Avast and Avira consider the code as BAD. No problem for deployment, but this IS a big problem for any clients connecting. Antivirus also jumps in and the only way to download on a client is by also deactivating the antivirus.
3 - How can I embed a Manifest?
4 - I cannot run my applications anymore when the server is down. This should be possible in my opinion, once you have done the initial download. It would give us the possibility to have the file server running while our customers are testing and we are still uploading new requirements or bugfixes, but once we've reached a stable situation, there'd be no more need to have the fileserver running.
5 - Some examples for registering OCX and DLLs would be nice. An example shows the use of regasm.exe, but not all clients have an available regasm. Can we somehow deploy a regasm.exe in the files section and then run it with the script?
Edit: 6 - We are using commandline parameters. How should I fit in a commandline parameter, now that there's already some in the shortcuts produced by the C/S deployment?
