Newbie questions for Power Builder 5

Newbie questions for Power Builder 5

Newbie questions for Power Builder 5

We have some legacy code for Power Builder 5 that we need to update to migrate to a Windows 2019 server.

I've been asked to research how to upgrade this code from PB5 to PB6 or higher?

I am COMPLETELY new to PowerBuilder :( Does anyone have any quick pointers they could share with a newb on this one? Thanks in Advance!!

One of my first questions is actually what IDE would I use for PB 5?

RE: Newbie questions for Power Builder 5

Go to www.appeon.com and look at the latest version (2019). They have some tutorials and such and you can download a trial version. You can then experiment with migrating your ancient code to the latest version.

Best of luck.

RE: Newbie questions for Power Builder 5

PowerBuilder has it's own IDE, there aren't any third party IDEs that will support it.
