PowerBuilder 12.6 executables are not working on windows server 2008 R2

Hi All,

we have migrated the code from powerbuilder 12.5 to 12.6 version and tested in my local system windows 7 64-bit desktop. Everything works fine in local system.

We have deployed the powerbuilder 12.6 executable in windows server 2008 R2. When we try to launch the application it is asking for credentials to logon, previously it is taking the windows authentication and not showing the logon page. when we enter the right credentials also the application (12.6 exe) is not launching.

Appreciate your help in resolving the issue.

Thanks.

  • I assume this message is for a database connection. If so, what database system is being connected? Were you also using windows authentication on Windows 7 to make the connection?

    The error message is "Invalid Logon ID or Password".

    Hi Mahesh;

    Did you install the PB run-time system on W2008R2 by running the MSI install produced from the Packager App that comes with PB 12.6? Also, did you install & configure your DBMS client software as well that your PB App requires?

    Regards ... Chris

      when i copy the ini file manually to c:/windows/ced.ini file the application is launching from citrix server. But i have to take the ini file from %usergroup%/windows/ced.ini.

      Could you please help what is missing here and do i need to setup any environment variable to pick the ini other that c:/windows/ced.ini path.

    Hi Chris,

    The problem here is the application is running fine when we copy the ini file into c:/windows/ced.ini

    when we are trying to call the application through Vb script via user profile, from user directory it is not picking the ini file. The same script we have used for Power builder 12.5 that time it is working.

    when we call the powerbuilder 12.6 executable it is not picking the ini file from user directory on citrix server.

    Thanks,

    Mahesh.

    I would think it will be because of when you are calling from VB script , the application path behaves different then before.

    Please capture the application path and see different between local and server. Also see how you are getting ini file path.

    Thanks

    Nothing from your PB Apps should ever be copied into the "Windows" folder!

    That is a complete "No, no"!
