Overloading a .pbr entry

Hi all,

I have deployed a vesion with a wrong jpg inside the .pbr file.

I have no time to build/update the version to all customers. Is there a way to put the jpg inside their app folder in a way to somehow overload the one in the .pbr?

Thanx in advance!

    Hi Panos,

    Do you have an "upgrade.pbl" in your path ahead of the pbl the pbr file is associated with? If so you might be able to attach another pbr file that references the correct jpg to your "upgrade.pbl" and deploy that. Your app should find the jpg in the upgrade.pbd first.

    hth,

    Mark

    PB will start searching first in the exe and then in the pbd's in the library path before looking for files as far as I remember.

    So an option could be to replace the exe if it is normally empty and all objects in the pbd's.

    Hi Panos.

    During compile did you get any error warning that the resource wasn't found?

    In your project how do yo reference the resource? Are you using a full path or a relative path?

      The problem is that I compiled the app with the wrong jpg.

      I want to overload it with the correct jpg in the customer installations without needing to change versions/new installations etc
