SAP Powerbulder 12.5 Update Problem

We want to install Powerbuilder on a new computer with Windows 7. We have a license server (sysam) with us in the network.
After the installation of 12.5 we were able to start Powerbuilder. After updating to 12.5.2 (build 5609), the following error message appears .

    Hi Rudolf;

    The error message says InfoMaker. Are both PB and IM having this issue or just IM?

    Regards ... Chris

    Hi Rudolf

    I had the same problem. I then switched off the remote support in the system.

    After the restart, PB has taken the key. Try this.

    Hello Rudolf;

    May I suggest:

    a) Try this first ...

    • Locate pb125_sysam.properties in C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\Sybase\PowerBuilder 12.5
    • Right click on the file and select "Properties".
    • Click on the "Previous Versions" tab. Wait a bit until the File Versions box is populated.
    • Select a version from a restore point when you knew PB to be working OK and then click the RESTORE button.
    • PB should start normally

    b) Try to replace the Sysam Properties file with the one from C:\Program Files (x86)\Sybase\PowerBuilder 12.5. Its possible that your pb125_sysam.properties file (in C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\Sybase\PowerBuilder 12.5) might have gotten corrupted

    c) run a Sysam trace ...

    This could be triggered by special characters the server cannot parse.

    See Knowledge Base Article 2147788 for more information.
