Installing PowerDesigner Viewer in Windows 10

Hello folks,

I'm with a problem in Windows 10 when I connect in a repository using the PowerDesigner Viewer (Version 16.5 SP4).

The "Connection Type" of my repository is "Proxy". In the "Proxy Repository Definition", I fill the "Repository name", the "Server name" and "Port number". When I click in the combobox, nothing appears and if I fill the combo with my instance name and click the "Test" button, the following error occur: "The Windows Socket Connection to the proxy failed with error: 0 (...)"

I know that this code does not help nothing =/

This version is not compatible with Windows 10?

Can someone help me?

Thanks

    Hi,

    the combobox lists the data sources defined in System DSN for the Proxy flavor (32 or 64bits).

    Can you check you have your data sources defined in the right ODBC Administrator?

    I tried on my Windows 10, and I don't have problem.

      Hello Thierry,

      I solved the problem. Windows 10 "recognize" the DNS of my company differently from windows 7. So I had to put the complete path to the server, for example, "powerdesigner.server.com" instead of just "powerdesigner" which is my DNS.

      Did I made myself clear? 😭😭

      Thanks
