Release Notes for PowerBuilder® and InfoMaker® Version 2017 Localized Runtime Files

Last revised: November 27, 2017

This file contains installation information for the localized runtime files for PowerBuilder and InfoMaker 2017 (build 1681).

Section I: General Information

PowerBuilder localized runtime files are available in eight European languages: Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish.

The localized PowerBuilder runtime files are needed to display standard dialog boxes, PowerBuilder messages, and user interface elements (such as day and month names in spin controls) in the local language. PowerBuilder functions return translated strings when appropriate. For example, the PowerBuilder DayName function returns a day name in the local language, and the String function returns a month in the local language when used with a display format that uses the mask "mmm."

Section II: Software Requirements

Applications deployed with the files in this distribution must be developed using the PowerBuilder or InfoMaker 2017 Release (build 1681).
