Hello
I need to recover some information from a program created with pb that is running.
1) the complete path from where the program started
2) the date of creation of the program (exe)

Are there any APIs?
I can not find anything

To get the location of the executable:

http://anvil-of-time.com/wordpress/powerbuilder/powerbuilder-application-path/

To read the version info out of the executable:

http://www.rgagnon.com/pbdetails/pb-0120.html

However, what I like to do with the second is to put something in the code that records the compile date and just use that:

Hi Gimmy;

        I know that you are using my Web Service framework.  If you use my other framework - called the Integrated Framework - it supplies you with all that information for the client, web and mobile apps. Of course, you are always welcome to just adopt the code you need from the frameworks into your own apps or home built framework as well.  wink

HTH

Regards ... Chris
