    Hi Chen;

    Only the new PB 15 release that is currently being developed should be compliant with W8.x. Older PB versions may work with the newer Windows 8 O/S depending on what features you are using. The only way to know for sure is to migrate your PB applications to the latest production release and give them a try under W8.

    Good luck!

    Regards ... Chris

    You probably should use the current version ( 12.5.x ) although no version has been officially certified on Windows 8 or 8.1.

    What do you mean by "Automatic control" ? Please explain.

      Hi Roland,

      The "Automatic Control" means:

      We want to access the "SENSOR" message in the door.

      Example, when the door is open or closed, we can get messages (0 or 1) by USB or RS232 with Powerbuilder Application.

      We want to know doors when be open or closed and recorded.

      Our boss will get those messages by a windows 8.1 mobile device.

      So, we have to study the know-how.

      Would you provide us relative technical documents and example, we will very appreciate for you.

      Thank you very much.

      chen.
