Change build settings in Open Text Gupta Object Nationalizer

Change build settings in Open Text Gupta Object Nationalizer

Change build settings in Open Text Gupta Object Nationalizer

(OP)
Hi,

I Have a question regarding changing build settings of Object Nationalizer 7.0 in open text Gupta team developer 7.0.

When I am trying to see source code using .exe file using open text Gupta Object Nationalizer 7.0 it is throwing an error
"*.exe file can not be opened for resource editing. You need to change the build settings in Open Text Gupta Object Nationalizer 7.0 to enable resource editing and rebuilt it"

But I am not able to see build settings for particular tool. Any one, Please help me in this regards.

Here I am attaching error screen shot also. Please guide me.

RE: Change build settings in Open Text Gupta Object Nationalizer

Before programmers build the .exe or .apd files that are to be modified
with Object Nationalizer, they must check the 'Enable Resource Editing' box in the Build Settings dialog box when they build the application with SQLWindows.

So , BEFORE you build the exe , go to Menu Item 'Project' --> 'Build Settings' --> 'Build Target' tab --> the check box to 'Enable Resource Editing' is half way down.



The diagram below shows you the overall flow as you might use Object Nationalizer
to localize or modify an application

Attached is the full TD 7 manual for Object Nationalizer. I have tried similar here and works as per the manual - but you need to read and understand the whole thing first. I see you are runnning over an RDP - so are you sure you are picking up the modified exe , and not the un-modified one . Try it locally first so you can be sure .

First of all Thank you sir.

Yes, I am using it in the RDP only, but i don't have un modified file, I have only .exe file.

I have one doubt,

If I have only .exe file, I did not build it, I am just using the .exe file, I don't have un-modified one.

My question is "Is it possible to see source code from that .exe file which i am using?"

Thanks and Regards,
Kishore K.

RE: Change build settings in Open Text Gupta Object Nationalizer

You need to set the 'Enable Resource Editing' switch BEFORE the exe is built . Therefore you DO need the source code so you can re-compile and re-build the exe with this switch set.
You cannot get the source code from the exe.
You will only be able to proceed with this if you have the latest , compilable Source code.
