Hi,

I have a PB9 application. When I tried to print a report,
I got an error:
Error Opening DLL Library pfccom32.dll for external function
at line 39 in function of_printdlg of object
pfc_n_cst_platformwin32

There is no dll change or anything of that sort happened in
the powerbuilder.
What could be the reason ? How can this be resolved?

This occurs when I perform File -> Print and also with the
print Icon

Thanks,
Sejal

It means you migrated an old copy of PFC to version 9, rather than
using the newer version that was supplied with that version of PB. The
dependancy on that DLL was removed in PowerBuilder 8:

http://pbdj.sys-con.com/node/42339

"{PowerBuilder 8] also adds the PrintSetupPrinter function to display
the printer setup dialog to the user. One side effect of this is that
Sybase no longer needs to provide the PFCCOM32.DLL file with PFC as a
result. The only thing that DLL did was support the printer setup
dialog call, so the PFC code has been modified to call the new
PowerScript function."
