Why would PB 12.6 not be able to read a simple INI file?

I have been maintaining two legacy PowerBuilder apps, that have been in PB version 11.5 for many years. Recently, I was told that we have to upgrade to PB v12.6, so I got 12.6 and installed it. I tried to run my application, which works fine in 11.5, and has for decades, but the same app in PowerBuilder 12.6 Classic will not read a simple INI file, using the ProfileString methods. I really need to get this going.

    Hi Michael;

    AFAIK, there are no known issues with PB 12.6 and using the ProfileString () method to read INI files. My suggestion is to look deeper in your code via the PB Debugger to trace & see what might be the issue. I am guessing more of an "path'ing" issue as the culprit.

    Regards ... Chris

    Hi,
    Did you install the latest PB 12.6 patch build 4220.

    A lot of issues were fixed since the GA release.

    Regards.

    Abdallah.
