Online installer for Appeon products

A new and more efficient way to install the Appeon products is introduced -- PowerBuilder/InfoMaker Installer, which is an online installer with a self-extracting download that leads you through the installation process. The machine will be required to connect with Internet during the installation process.

Besides that, the installation process was incorporated with the following enhancements:

  • You can select to use the PostgreSQL engine (in addition to the SQL Anywhere engine) for running the PowerBuilder demo database.

    If you specify the PostgreSQL engine, make sure both the PostgreSQL client (included in Command Line Tools of the PostgreSQL Windows installer) and PostgreSQL ODBC driver (32-bit) are installed.

  • You can install PowerBuilder Runtime as a separate component for PowerBuilder IDE.

    PowerBuilder Runtime must be installed before PowerBuilder IDE if you want to install PowerBuilder Runtime and PowerBuilder IDE sequentially one by one. For more information, refer to the section called “Installing PowerBuilder Runtime” in Application Techniques.

  • You can install PowerBuilder Compiler from PowerBuilder Installer, as the PowerBuilder Compiler installation program is integrated into PowerBuilder Installer.

    For more information, refer to the section called “Installing PowerBuilder Compiler” in Users Guide.

  • You can select an MR version and complete in one step the installation of both the full version and the selected MR.

  • You can now modify installation if you have not fully installed all the products in a certain version. The Install button on the entry page of the installer will change to Modify.
