What do I need to resolve the following error after migrating from PB10 to PB17? Error: "Unresolvable external pbdom_exception when linking reference"

The error occurs on a client's machine, but not developer's machine and I believe it has something to do with the dll/files that are inside Appeon folder in the developers machine, but I don't know which files.

Thank you,

Hi Zacharia, 


Also make sure you are actually using the latest version of PBDOM (pbdom170.pbd). That is also a requisite for it to work properly.

From section 14.5 of the PB 2017 R2 Application Techniques pub/pdf:

The pbdom170.pbx and pbdom170.pbd files are placed in the Shared\PowerBuilder directory when you install PowerBuilder. When you are building a PBDOM application, you do not need to copy pbdom170.pbx to another location, but you do need to deploy it with the application in a directory in the application's search path.

If your app is not using PBDOM, I believe all you need to do is omit the pbdom170.pbd from the project's library list in order to eliminate the reference.
