PB 12.1 Browser Not Appearing


My Browser (the window available via Tools - Browser) has disappeared, and I am not sure how to find it. When I click on the Browser, the main PB window flickers, but the Browser window never appears.

I'm not sure where the Browser window parameters are stored. There doesn't seem to be anything remotely conspicuous in PB.INI. I did check the registry, and found that when I rename the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sybase\PowerBuilder\12.0 key and re-start PB, I can then get the Browser to appear. However -- if I close out of PB, re-open it, and try to open the Browser again, I get the same behavior with PB flickering and otherwise not opening the Browser.

I've used this version of PB (12.1, build 6950) for years and have never had a problem with the Browser before. I can work around the issue by re-naming the registry key as mentioned in the prior paragraph, but that is going to get old very fast. There must be some registry key or other setting that I am missing.

Any ideas? Thanks.
