Prior to PowerBuilder 8, your database profiles as well as the list of installed database interfaces on your system were stored in your PowerBuilder initialization file (PB.INI). PowerBuilder 8 uses the Windows registry to get and store this database configuration information. Normally, you should not need to access or modify items in the registry.
Sharing database profiles between PowerBuilder and InfoMaker Since the database profiles used by both PowerBuilder and InfoMaker are stored in a common registry location, database profiles you create in either product are automatically available for use by the other product (if both products are running on the same computer).
Information related to the database profiles you have defined is stored in Hkey_Current_User/Software/Sybase/EAStudio/4.0/DatabaseProfiles/PowerBuilder.
Information related to database interfaces installed on your machine is stored in Hkey_Local_Machine/Software/Sybase/PowerBuilder/8.0/Vendors.
Importing database profiles from your PowerBuilder 7 PB.INI If you have database profiles defined in your PowerBuilder 7 PB.INI that you want to migrate to your PowerBuilder 8 environment, use Import Profile from the Database Profile Setup dialog box or the Database painter. From the Select Profile File dialog box, select your PowerBuilder 7 PB.INI file and select the profile(s) you want to import. These profiles are copied directly to the registry.
