I have created an application that used ldap login. 

Below is my sample code


boolean ls_val
jsonpackage lnv_pack1,lnv_pack2
jsonparser lnv_jsonparser

lnv_pack1 = create jsonpackage
lnv_pack2 = create jsonpackage
HttpClient lnv_HttpClient
lnv_HttpClient = Create HttpClient


ls_json = '{"user":"'+gs_userid +'", "password": "'+s_pass +'"}'

// Constructs a POST request (supports all headers)
lnv_HttpClient.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json;charset=UTF-8")
// Content-Length header set by SendRequest

// Sends request using POST method (to add the string data to the body and set to the Content-Length header)
li_rc = lnv_HttpClient.SendRequest("POST", "http://www.sample.com/ldap/ldap.asmx/ldap", ls_json)

// Obtains the response data
if li_rc = 1 and lnv_HttpClient.GetResponseStatusCode() = 200 then
end if

ls_value = lnv_pack1.getvalue("d")
ls_val = lnv_pack2.getvalueboolean("Status")


if ls_val then 


end if


Above is my shortcut sample codes. Everything is working fine and I was able to login successfully using ldap.

But when I created an installer using inno setup and try to install it to other pc (that pc don't have any pb application installed) the user cannot login. My guess is that im missing a DLL. Attached the screenshot of  my .iss setup for my installer. 


Thank you so much.

Hi Avory,

I see you have pbjson190.dll deployed. But I don't see pbhttpclient190.dll.

As Chris already wrote: Look at PB Online help: https://docs.appeon.com/pb2019r3/application_techniques/ch09s02.html#PowerBuilder_runtime_files

It is part of your PB installation.

Hi Avory;

   Have a look in the PB Help using the keyword search "runtime". From there, you should find a link to the list runtime files required by feature & also Microsoft dependencies as well. Hopefully, that will point you to some missing DLL files that may also needed to be copied (unless you used the PB Packager utility).

  Also when I have done LDAP enabled PB Apps before, I could not deploy the PB Apps to the end users as they did not have any privileges to access the LDAP repository directly. Instead, I had to create a Web Service running in a elevated account Application Pool under IIS in order to perform the LDAP interactions. Once I has the WS, I could then called the WS from my PB Apps (even PowerServer Web/Mobile) to do the LDAP interactions. That also worked for non-PB Apps as well. Food for thought.

Regards ... Chris

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your insight. As what you can see from my posted sample I created a web service then call it in my app. My big guess on my problem is that I have a missing DLL. Because I tried to install it in another computer that has power builder installed then the application is running correctly and the user was able to login successfully but in a simple computer that no powerbuilder installed the user can't login. I have attached a photo on my posted question of DLL I include in my exe. Any idea what DLL I am missing? Thank you.
