I have an application, and the executable which I created from it,
developed in the 16-bit version of Infomaker 6.0. Can I create a 32-bit
executable from the same application? If so, how?

I have tried launching IM 32-bit 6.0, opening the PBL (which I created
earlier in 16-bit IM 6.0), and then creating an executable by clicking on
the Create Executable icon on the Environment painterbar. After I click on
the icon a dialog box displays asking me if I want to reuse the objects in
the most recently created executable, then nothing - absolutely nothing -
happens no matter which way I answer the dialog box.

Thanks,
Dan Reke

The pbl should be compatible. If it doesn't allow you to specify 'do not
reuse most recent settings', I would create a new pbl in IM6-32 and then
copy all the reports and forms to this new pbl.
