i have build a exe and copied all pbd to the exe in the same folder. When i run the exe on my build server there comes no error, but when i use a computer without powerbuilder installed i get this error: see pic24637.gif


I Used the IDE Compiler and not the pbautobuilder.


Kind Regards, Tom Holscher

Powerbuilder looks for the runtime in the path that is specified in XML file (applicationame.xml) that is created on build. Change the path to the runtime in the xml file.

The other way: If you don't deploy the xml file Powerbuilder searches the for runtime files like other Windows applications. For example you can specify the path in windows PATH variable.

Hi Deva

here is an example for a xml file:


<RuntimePath>C:\Program Files (x86)\Appeon\Common\PowerBuilder\Runtime</RuntimePath>


You have to place it in the same folder where the exe is and name it like the exe file (e,g, test.xml for test.exe).

RuntimePath have to point to the folder where the application can find the runtime DLLs.
