Hi there,

one of our customers would like to use Powerbuiler on Windows Server 2022.

Does anyone have any experience with it?
Is the MS Server 2022 supported?
If so, in which version.

We are currently using PB2019R3 2670

Thanks in advance
have a nice day

MS Server 2022 isn't supported as it was released after PB 2021 was released. And you must be aware that even windows server 2019, 2016 & 2012 R2 are only supported for powerbuilder runtime. Not for the IDE.

From PB 2021 Installation Guide (System Requirements - - Installation Guide (appeon.com)):

Supported by PowerBuilder IDE and Runtime:

Windows 8.1 32-bit or 64-bit

Windows 10 32-bit or 64-bit (excluding Windows IoT and Windows Embedded Compact)

Supported by PowerBuilder Runtime only:

Windows Server 2012 R2

Windows Server 2016

Windows Server 2019


If you decide to go on with the IDE on a windows server, and encounter an issue, to get support you will have to replicate that issue on a supported platform (currently for pb 2021 it is windows 8.1 and windows 10).

Here is a link with the equivallent information for PB 2019R3: System Requirements - - Installation Guide (appeon.com).
