Installing PowerBuilder deployment files – PB Docs 70

Installing PowerBuilder deployment files

When you install PowerBuilder, shared files that are used by
both PowerBuilder and InfoMaker are installed in the SharedPowerBuilder directory.
You need to deploy a subset of these files with your application.

The following table indicates which feature each file is required
to support. For example, PBVM70
is required for all 32-bit deployed applications. You need not install
some other files unless your application uses the features indicated.
You should install the deployment DLLs in the same directory as
the application or in a directory on the system path.

are described in “Making the data source available”.

note.gif Filenames PowerBuilder for Unicode DLLs have a letter u at the end of
the filename so that you can tell whether you are deploying the
correct versions of files. For example, if your application includes DataWindow objects,
you will deploy PBDWE70U
.DLL if you
developed your application with PowerBuilder for Unicode and you are
deploying on a version of Windows NT that supports the Unicode Standard. (The
following tables show the ANSI versions of filenames.)

Localized deployment files

Localized deployment files are provided for French, German,
Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish. These files
are usually available shortly after the general release of a new
version of PowerBuilder.

The localized deployment files let you deploy PowerBuilder applications
with standard runtime dialog boxes in the local language. They handle
language-specific data when the application runs, including:

  • DayName function
    The DayName function returns a name in the language of the
    deployment files available on the machine where the application
    is run.
  • DateTime manipulation When you use the String function to format a date and the
    month is displayed as text (for example, the display format includes
    “mmm”), the month is in the language of the deployment files available
    when the application is run.
  • Error messages PowerBuilder error message are translated into the language
    of the deployment files.
