Qing-hao Liang recently tested PB 12.6 compatibility with the Windows 10 Technical Preview. In his post on the SAP PowerBuilder Developer Centre, he first covers the installation process of Windows 10 Technical Preview and then tests it with PB 12.6 GA installer, PB.NET, and SQL Anywhere 16. He also explains the challenges he encounters.

It seems that the installation process is as smooth as on Windows 7 and that it's easy to get familiar with the environment. The PB Examples application shipped with PowerBuilder works perfectly, so do a PB.NET and a PB WPF application. Yet, after installation the second and deeper levels of PB are not visible when opening the Start Menu, which is worse than in Windows 8.?

Qing-hao Liang writes that the first experience is very encouraging and that the performance of Windows 10 Technical Preview is better than on Windows 7, especially for PB.NET IDE. While Windows 10 is still at an early stage, the future seems to be promising.


Don't forget to attend the exceptional PowerBuilderTV webcast with the participation of SAP and various PB community members tomorrow (Thursday, January 29, 2015) at 7:00 AM PST (Los Angeles) / 16h00 CET (Paris).
