PowerClient looks very exciting as a way to solve the perennial client/server problem of deploying code to clients! But I have questions about a couple of aspects that are making me think it’s not something we can use yet. I haven't had any hand-on ...
When performing a compile using the autocompiler for PB 2019 R2, it seems to generate a log file but the filename seems to change depending on when and where I do the compile. Here is an example of my compile using pbc190.exe: C:\temp_git\Powerbuil...
Hi.   We have a beast of a server, running and AMD Ryzen 9 3950X (16 cores) CPU, a ton of memory and SSD storage. What is the best config in VMWare ESXi for a PowerBuilder buildserver? My understanding is that PB is fond of lots of cores and CPU ...
This issue is found in Version 2019 R2 Build 2353. There is a difference between the pbt library list and the build option library list. I get the warning: The current library list is different from the library list contained within this project. T...
I've recently migrated about a dozen PB apps from 12.5 up to 2019 R2.  We also moved from TFS to Bitbucket for source control, we're now storing the .pbl's in Bitbucket, and I'm using Bruce Armstrong's tutorial (thanks Bruce!) to get our builds done ...
I am migrating from PB12 to PB19.  My application runs in development on PB19.  I built it and the built version runs on the development machine.  However if I move it (and all the runtime DLLs to another machine) I get the error "The application was...
This question is a follow-up to a previous question I asked about build "system" for PB2019. I have been banging my head on the walls for 3 days trying to understand how on Earth orcascript is supposed to work and how I could make it do what I want. ...
Hello, We are currently building a large-ish PowerBuilder (2017 but we are in the process of migrating to 2019) application using Microsoft's DevOps pipelines. Our current build script takes quite a lot of time as we: cleanup everything copy all...
We currently are using TFS for source control. When I deploy the project no sr* files are being created. I verified that the delete pb generated objects is unchecked in the source control property. This just started happening yesterday and I cannot f...
When switching our internal build system to support the PowerBuilder Standalone Compiler (pbc170) I ran into several issues that might be worth looking at.   The compiler does not provide a proper exit code. In my tests several different build fai...

We recently upgraded to the Powerbuilder 2019 from PB 12.5. We also have increased the number of developers and would like to use the SVN feature with PB 2019. We found instructions on how to set this up (using instructions for PB 2017 R2 You tube vi...
I would like to get detailed instruction of all the components to download, install, and configure for smooth integration with PowerBuilder 2017 R3. Or if I move to 2019 Version....
Source control in PB2017 and 2019 was improved to no longer export all objects into a common folder. It now creates a subfolder for each PBL and extracts it's source there. This avoids the problem of having objects with the same name in multiple PBLs...
The version information will display in the Windows property, but how does one access this to display it in a Power Builder window? Using the GetContextService for the ContextInformation returns version information for Power Builder itself and not th...
