Problem deploying Appeon mobile

I am trying to get Appeon mobile trial working and am running into several problems. I have successfully installed the Appeon server and IIS 8.5 on a Windows 2012 R2 remote server.

I have installed the developer on a local Windows 7 computer which also seem to have been successful and I can run AEM on the remote server from local. As I am having trouble setting up ftp access to the remote (web) server I installed IIS 10 locally as web server.

My first problem is that Appeon apparently doesn’t support the PFC. I wrote a very simple unmodified PFC sdi program with just two windows inherited from w_main and one datawindow (MySQL) and got in excess of 200 errors. So I rewrote the program without PFC.

When deploying I specify the remote Appeon server (test connects successfully) and localhost for the web sever (also connects successfully). I have also given full access on wwwroot to IIS_IUSRS(Appeon)\IIS_IUSRS and added localhost to the IE trusted sites.

The deploy runs fine with no errors and c:\inetpub\wwwroot\application\ is filled, but if I press [Run] I get the error

HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

If I attempt to open index.htm in IE the link changes to x64_index.htm and I get the error “This page cannot be displayed”. Even when compiling as 32 bit.

Am I missing a step? The only thing I can think of is that I have installed the 32 bit Appeon server on the remote computer as I need 32 bit ODBC drivers for other projects..

Thanks for any help,


Developer: Windows 7, .NET 4.5.3, IIS 10

Powerbuilder: 12.6 Build 4091

Appeon server: Windows Server 2012 R2. .NET 4.5

Web server: localhost
