I have been given a task to replace an old parts system and looking for the least expensive product to use.
I have found "New" copies of PB 5.0 for under 100$. I know it is old but the last application I wrote was on PB 4.0
I have tried learning visual C# and it is way to complicated for what I need. 4-5 screens 5 small tables, a few reports and we are done.
So after you stop laughing. Will PB 5.0 run on windows XP? I don't need more than a simple DB that comes with it.
The app is only going to run on 2-3 workstations and I have until the end of the month to complete, so I chose something I know, rather than trying to learn and work 60 hrs a week.
