Hi Appeon Team,


I created an executable of an application. The application uses rich text control which works well when i run the application with power-builder IDE but if i run the executable  It says "Failed to create the control. Please confirm that this rich text control is installed and activated: Built-in Text control". Although our application uses the default text control with-in the power builder. Also i made sure to enable the Built-in text control option enabled under the objects additional properties. Please check the screenshot.  Do i need to include any dll's or other power-builder system files to enable the rich text control run with the executable? Let me know the way forward.


Thanks in Advance!!

Hi BFMS team,

You can find list of runtime files required by the Rich Text control in PowerBuilder Online Help:

  • PowerBuilder Help
    • Application Techniques
      • Deployment Techniques
        • Deploying Applications and Components
          • PowerBuilder Runtime Files


Search for "Rich Text support".
