We've recently purchased Powerbuilder 2017, and our previous implementation of Powerbuilder was 12.5. I have a web service proxy calling into an ASMX service that was previously using a SOAP connection.

After migrating the project I changed the SOAP connection to a WS connection, and that part appears to be working. I've been unable to determine exactly how to link the WS connection to my Service proxy variable, and as a result when I try to call a method on my Service proxy the whole application shuts down with a runtime error.

Any ideas on what I need to do to get my service calls working properly?

The Standard Edition is not support Web service. The Cloud Edition is required to use Web services. If you can reproduce the issue with the Cloud Edition, please provide a simple PB case to us for more study, thanks.

Then I have one more question. Is there a way in the Standard edition to at least work with web services that were pre-existing before upgrading to Powerbuilder 2017?
