64bit does not work at all.

12.6 Build 4139 on Windows 10.

When compiled to 64bit, the app main window appears briefly and closes. Even a simple app that opens a window with no code in it closes. PB 2017 does not have this issue.

Is there a EBF available for 12.6 with a fix for this?

I just created the PB Tutorial Application as 64 bit pcode and can run it successfully on Windows 10 Version 1607(OS Build 14393.1944). So I cannot explain why you might be running into problems. I will test with the specific build you are testing to see if I can reproduce this issue.

There is a later SP 12.6 SP00 PL14 (Build 4166) released in Oct/2017.

As you are already aware, SAP PB has no releases that are tested/supported on Windows 10. PB 2017 is the first release of the Appeon PowerBuilder product and it does support Windows 10.


I have also tried on the same build that you reported and it is working with a new application with a simple window.

PB engineering is not testing on Windows 10and so no Windows 10 specific issues are being investigated.

I myself have Windows 10 and just again created a simple 64 bit exe with the latest EBF,build 4166 and it runs just fine for me.

I have heard from other customers though reporting similar behavior as you. They had multiple machines with Windows 10 and most worked fine and a few did not so it appeared to be environmental.

Hi Roland,

Did you try with PB 12.6 build 4166.

It did fix similar issue when MS office 365 was installed on the same machine.

Kind Regards.
