I currently work on a project of upgrading ApplinX from version 4.01.0004 to 5.2.1.0005. (FYI: I work in the company that has a legal version of applinX)
The server is dedicated to the application written in Visual Basic 6.0.
A supplier which will perform necessary changes in the VB 6.0 application for my company did some kind of prototyping
and encountered problem with connecting to ApplinX via Visual Basic code.
In the previous version of ApplinX they were using “gxbasobj.dll” (which were located under: c\Program Files Sabratec\ApplinX).
This file was added in the visual basic project as a reference, then in the actual code an object of that DLL was created. Furthemore with use of this object it was possible to call different functions explored by “gxbasobj.dll” to get the info from mainframe.
Problem statement is that the supplier can not locate the gxbasobj.dll in the new version of ApplinX (5.2.1) and what comes the - it is not possible to connect from the VB code to ApplinX server.
Looking at the documentation I have a feeling that the new (5.2.1) ApplinX version do support applications written in Visual Basic .NET - does this mean that the existing application in VB 6.0 would have to be updated to VB .NET?? Please correct me if I am wrong.
the documentation says it is recommended to use Windows 2000 Server Edition and above to install ApplinX server,
however - is that any possibility to install it on Windows 2000 Professional (our licence key does not allow for that)?
Thanks in advance for any help,
