I just want to inform folks of something I learned through a bug report. I was testing deployment of one of our apps with PB2021 for the first time. We use a custom installer, not the Runtime Packager, because what we need to do is somewhat complex.

When I first did this, following the list of files in the Help topics on Deployment, my application kept silently crashing in PBDWE.DLL on a line that assigned a datawindow object to a datastore (like ds.DataObject = "dw name").

Eventually it turned out that contrary to the docs, PBCRYPT.DLL is always needed in your install, even if you aren't using the CoderObject or CrypterObject. As soon as I added that to my installer, the crash went away.

Appeon has confirmed this, and says that the docs were fixed for PB2022.

PB 2021 has it, just do this in the script:

CrypterObject lnv_Crypt

lnv_Crypt = Create CrypterObject
