FAQs
  • Can I use the Intelligent Updater to publish my
    Win32 PowerBuilder applications?
  • The Intelligent Updater was designed to publish
    only .NET WinForm-deployed PowerBuilder
    applications.
  • However, if you can bear some limited
    functionality, a Win32 PowerBuilder application
    can be packaged in an .MSI file and
    published/deployed as a prerequisite.

20
FAQs
  • Do I have to use IIS as my Smart Client
    Publishing server when using HTTP?
  • Yes.
  • PowerBuilder's .NET Smart Client publishing
    enhances ClickOnce technology which is closely
    integrated with IIS.

21
FAQs
  • What tool should I use to author .MSI files for
    use with publishing my applications
    prerequisites?
  • Profile of various MSI authoring tools
  • http//www.installsite.org/pages/en/msi/authoring.
    htm

22
FAQs
  • Will the Intelligent Updater publish my entire
    application each time, or just the modified
    portions?
  • As of PowerBuilder 11.1, only the modified
    portions (.NET Modules) of the application should
    be downloaded.
  • However, the .NET modules for all the PBLs in the
    application and any unchanged data files included
    as resources are downloaded to the client in the
    GA version of PowerBuilder 11.1. CR 479418
