Powerbuilder EXE/DLL Versioning


whilst PB (12.5.2) observes version information entered in "Project - Version Information" tab during compile and build of a full project it does not do so if you just build a runtime library from PBL included in project.

Our objective is to have the possibility to deploy only changed PBL/DLL's as patches due to large project. We often implement minor changes which need to be rolled out to production environment quickly.  Due to the size of our project Compile, Build and MSI gerneration takes at least 2h. Not to mention the  install time in production environment with 100+ clients.

For such minor updates we would like do deploy MSP file to clients. Building the MSP is not a problem, but due to the fact, that PB ignores Version Information when building single runtime library from PBL we must manually edit DLL version info before building MSP. IMHO this is not only time consuming but it is also not best praxis to "hack" dll files...

Any Idea's how we could optiomize and speed up the process?
