Third-Party Components and Deployment

InfoMaker applications have some dependencies on third-party components that are installed with InfoMaker.

You may redistribute some of these components with your application, but others must be obtained from the vendor.

Apache Files

You may redistribute the Apache files that are included with InfoMaker to your users.

Any use or distribution of the Apache code included with InfoMaker 2017 R3 must comply with the terms of the Apache License, which is located in the free download terms document for InfoMaker.

Version 0.20.5 of the Apache Formatting Objects Processor (FOP) is required if your application uses XSL-FO to save files as PDF. See the Apache FOP Web site at

The Apache Xerces files xerces-c_2_8.dll and xerces-depdom_2_8.dll are required for XML Web DataWindow support, XML support for DataWindows and DataStores, PBDOM, and SOAP clients for Web services. See the Xerces C++ Parser Web site at

Microsoft Files

Special Microsoft files are required on runtime computers for various InfoMaker features.

Visual C++ Runtime and the Active Template Library

When you deploy the core InfoMaker runtime files, make sure the msvcr100.dll and msvcp100.dll Microsoft Visual C++ runtime libraries and the Microsoft .NET Active Template Library (ATL) module atl100.dll, are present on the user’s computer or server.

The InfoMaker runtime files have a runtime dependency on these files and they are required for all applications and components that require the InfoMaker runtime. You can obtain these DLL files from the \Program Files\Appeon\Shared\PowerBuilder folder, or from the DLL archive website. Make sure you obtain the same version (32-bit or 64-bit) of these DLL files as the version (32-bit or 64-bit) of the PowerBuilder application executable.

Ink Picture Libraries

Microsoft.Ink, Microsoft.Ink.dll, and Microsoft.Resources.dll are required if your application uses InkEdit and InkPicture controls. These files are part of the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 and later, and are available at C:\Windows\winsxs and its sub-folders after .NET framework is installed.

DirectX Runtime

InfoMaker applications can use DirectX 3D rendering to display 3D graphs (Pie3D, Bar3D, Column3D, Line3D, and Area3D) with a more sophisticated look. You can use data item or series transparency with the DirectX graph styles to improve the presentation of data.

The DirectX 3D rendering depends on the DirectX runtime. The first time you select the Render3D check box on the General tab of the Properties view for a 3D graph, InfoMaker launches the DirectX installer. If you opt out of the installation, the Render3D property is ignored. End users of InfoMaker applications must also have the DirectX runtime installed on their computers to view the DirectX graph styles. You can download the DirectX runtime from the Microsoft Web site at

For computers with older graphics drivers, you can check whether DirectX is supported by running dxdiag.exe. This file is typically installed in the Windows\System32 directory. The Display tab of the DirectX Diagnostic Tool that opens when you run dxdiag.exe indicates whether Direct3D is enabled.

Oracle files

The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is required for EJB clients, JDBC connections, and saving as PDF using XSL-FO. For a copy of third-party terms and conditions for the JRE, see the free download terms document.The JRE can be downloaded from the Oracle Technology Network at
