Powerbuilder 12.6 - Saved Password disappeared at DB Profile(Not happned in PB 12.5.2)

env : OS-windows7 64bit  db-Oracle10g   PowerBuilder-version 12.6

Problem : In Powerbuilder 12.6, the saved Password is disappeared at DB Profile setup as below, hence they hit ORA-1005 null password given;logon denied.

They don't want to enter the password everytime. Is there anyone advise how to solve it ?

Our customer is very new to PB 12.6 and in the previous release it won't happen.

Many Thanks!

    As the message text the status bar indicates... error loading cryptography module ..password get lost.

    So this looks like a bad installation / setup to me.

    Same issue was also mentioned in this thread PowerBuilder new release available

    Installed PB12.6 yesterday. Has anyone reported this issue before:

    Please restart IDE: The cryptography module loaded incorrectly. The password for the database and application server profiles will be lost.

    This appears in statusbar when I create SNC database profile.

    Of course IDE as well as computer were restarted multiple times.

    Windows Server 2008 SP2

    PB 12.5 installed and works fine on the same computer.

    I am getting the same error and it's not a bad install. Was working fine for a week and then it started happening out of nowhere causing me to re-install PB 12.6. This is not the only issue currently happening, be careful if using edit mask functionality in datawindows as it will round numbers and also enter weird characters in some string fields.

    Our customers are not happy at all with this which might force us to revert back to PB 12.5.

    I saw this happen once with the error message and once without, but have not been able to reproduce since.  I tested with Win7 64-bit.

    I tried with both ORA and O10 connections.

    Is there a workaround for this. I can't work with my PB installation without saving my profiles 😔

      PB is trying to load a dll at a 'preferred' base address and will occasionally fail if the address is occupied by other modules.

      Do you have any other apps opened?


      It can be reproduce, if you have visual studio 2010 opened.

    Hi,

    I tested with PB 12.6/ W7 64 bits and ORACLE 11g but could not reproduce.

    The password is saved as in earlier version.

    Regards.

    Abdallah.

    Hi All,

    I am facing the same issues in PowerBuilder 12.6 Build 3506. I am trying to connect the Database Oracle Database through ORA Oracle interface, the password is not saving in the profile and I can't even connect to Database.

    Is there any fix or workaround for this?  it is killing my time.

    I never faced this issue before.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Balu

      Appreciate you quick reply.  Jacob Let me try this.

      For me the issues resolved after restarting my machine instead of PowerBuilder IDE.

      Thanks,

    I have the same problem for 3 days. Reinstall did not solve my problem. Today I run PB with "Run as Administrator" and suprisingly it started to save again the password.
