Unable to locate source management DLL.

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,

I have been using power builder 6.5 from 3 years and now I have to change some codes because there is a company that comes in and writes an application. It is not that hard to change the code, but I was just wondering that whenever I go to the word compile, I get the following message:


Unable to locate source management DLL. No connection to source management system has been established.

I have been checking the codes over and over again to see what might have been wrong. I really need someone who could assist me on where to look at to make this work like it was before. This was the first time I have encountered this and I don’t know what to do. I don’t even know where to start. A will appreciate all the advice.

Hi Nick Johnson,

This is a simple matter of setting the correct Source control. You can find your Source Control settings in the menu option of PowerBuilder 6.5. If you know the type of source control being used, then select the appropriate option. If not, you can consult the Help option in your PowerBuilder 6.5 for source control specifications. Usually choosing PB Native as Source Control fixes your problem. If it does not, try other Source Control options.

If this method did not work for you, try the method for lower version of PowerBuilder. In this method, you must open "pb.ini" and then search for "SourceVendor". The word will be followed by an "=" sign and then a text. You must delete the text after the "=" sign.

I hope I was able to help you.
