Db Locking issue with PB 12.5 and SQL Server 2008

Db Locking issue with PB 12.5 and SQL Server 2008

Db Locking issue with PB 12.5 and SQL Server 2008

I am trying to migrate my application from Powerbuilder 9.0 to Powerbuilder 12.5. I was using the DBProfile - "MSS Microsoft SQL Server" in PB 9.0. Since this is not present in PB 12.5, I am using the profile OLE DB to connect to SQL Server 2008. When I try to run the application after the migration, several database tables are getting locked. I even tried using NOLOCK in SQL Stored Procedures. But the lock seems to appear even after this change.
Following was my observation on further research:
While using the DBProfile in PB 9.0 I have StaticBind property set to FALSE. All the other properties of SQL Server 2008 remain the default. The same settings do not work in PB 12.5. I believe there is an issue with PB 12.5 trying to access the database.

Is there any setting that I need to provide to resolve this lock issue? Or is there any other resolution to it?

Have you tried the native sql driver?
