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.
