Do PowerBuilder DDE functions work on Windows 10?

969 Views Last edit Oct 25, 2016 at 04:18 PM 2 rev

Any time I try to execute a DDE function (e.g. OpenChannel or SetRemote) on a Windows 10 PC, PowerBuilder 12.6, build 4058, hangs and needs to be ended via Task Manager. Even the simple command below, which I've tested and have confirmed works fine on machines with earlier versions of Windows, doesn't work on Windows 10.

OpenChannel("WINWORD", "System")

Is there something wrong with my configuration, or is this a bug in PowerBuilder?
