Problems with power builder 11.5 or power builder 2017 and end support microsoft internet explorer

0 Kudos


we have a problem in power builder 2017 or power builder 11.5 with internet explorer and edge.

Using the ole_browser object of type microsoft web browser and using microsoft internet explorer as web browser it works and we can upload files to a java servlet connecting as follows



ole_object_upload.object.disconnectobject( )

being ls_url the URL of the servlet, for example "https://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", in the BLOB field we send the attached file

However, disabling Microsoft Internet Explorer in Windows 10 and setting Microsoft Edge as the default browser and enabling Edge Compatibility Mode with Microsoft Internet Explorer works randomly and does not give any errors.

We have tried to Change this: connecttonewobject("InternetExplorer.Application") by connecttonewobject("Edge.Application") and it doesn't work or give an error

AFAIK MS Edge does not have an OLE based interface. What I read on Google is that Edge IE compatibility mode does not include the ability to use OLE. You may want to ask this question in Appeon User Community as it is a more active forum and can address PB 2017 which they are the vendor.
