  • It includes technical support services only, and does not offer access to newer versions of PowerBuilder. Software updates are accessible by purchasing Appeon PowerBuilder maintenance.
  • The support is not delivered by Appeon engineers, but a team of Novalys PB-experts, independent from Appeon.
  • When answering your question, we will provide the appropriate solution or technique if available. If this ends up being a PB bug, we will still try to help by suggesting a workaround or a 3rd party tool. In some (rare) cases, there may simply be no solution. In all cases, we will report the bug to Appeon. Only they can fix bugs within PowerBuilder.
