STD Integrated Framework - PowerBuilder PB2017R3/2019 PSR Viewer

** Hot News **

PSR Viewer Application updated!

    Software Tool & Die Inc. are please to announce a new version of the PowerSoft Report (PSR) Viewer application built from the latest free open source STD Integrated Foundation Classes and specially designed for Appeon PowerBuilder version PB2017R3 MR02! The Foundation Classes provide most of the PSR functionality natively wrapped around the framework's DataWindow Control class! The PSR Viewer allows the user to view DataWindow reports that have been saved in PSR format from either Appeon PowerBuilder or InfoMaker. A .PSR file is actually the DataWindow Object source along with its Primary data buffer contents.

However, the application is already ready to migrate to the new PB2019 beta#2 using Appeon PB's built-in migration feature.
