How can I see and get the required PowerBuilder dlls to deploy and run my application on a client station (destination laptop) without installed PowerBuilder ? Currently, I'm migrating from PB12 to PB2022.

Hi Paweł;

   These are all nicely listed in the PB Help under the keyword search "runtime". Since PB2022 uses a much newer C++ compiler, Richtext, etc software "under the hood" than older PB versions. Please follow the runtime deployment documentation carefully in the help system.

  Note that Andrea's 1st link is for PB2019Rx which does not apply to PB2022 which has a newer runtime altogether.  HTH 

Regards .... Chris

Hi Chris.

I believe the link I provided is correct. Look at the url... There is some information that is relevant to PB 2019 like this: "All PowerBuilder runtime DLL files are digitally signed (starting from PowerBuilder 2019 R2)" which is true... But the information is about PB 2022.

The URL is correct now. It was pointing to R2.

First of all take a look to the following links:

PowerBuilder runtime files - - Application Techniques (appeon.com)

Database connections - - Application Techniques (appeon.com)

Third-party components and deployment - - Application Techniques (appeon.com)

Also Powerbuilder does provide a tool called PowerBuilder Runtime Packager which can create a msi with all files required based on components you select (you should select whatever your application uses). Attention: it will not include any third party dlls like Visual C++ runtime, or any 3rd party control - component you may be using.
