    extract import

    If you have OE Studio installed on your Windows box then you have the OE SQL driver you need. You should be able to create a system DSN to connect to your backup database, the one that contains the data you need. Then you can use the tools and language syntax you are familiar with to extract...

    Create Excel File

    Progress has a COM object viewer (%DLC%\bin\proobjvw.exe). Run that and then open the COM library (in this case, excel.exe). It will show you the OE view of the objects, properties, methods, and events. This is useful because OE and Excel don't always agree on signatures, e.g. which...

    extract import

    It's an application-development platform, with many optional components. Not all components are present in all environments, as CJ alluded to. If we're going to nitpick, OpenEdge is the name of the platform and Progress is the company that makes it. Though it can be confusing because in...

    Error Static instance failed to load. Cannot reference class xyz (14631)

    It's probably relevant to know your exact version and service pack of OpenEdge, from $DLC/version (or %DLC%\version on Windows).

    Question Profiling an AppServer

    Thanks, I'd appreciate that. Waiting anxiously for the day when this is a supported, documented, bug-free process from end to end. Maybe in 12.0...

    extract import

    My understanding from your original post, before it was edited, was that you had a user who deleted a few dozen records from a DB and you needed to restore them, and that you had a backup of the database as at the time those records existed. If I am misremembering that, please correct me. I...

    programmable virtual keyboard development

    What is a "programmable virtual keyboard"? Given that this is some sort of UI thing, and OE supports many different types of UIs with different capabilities (web/GUI/CHUI/.Net/Java/etc.), you should provide a more complete picture of what you are trying to achieve.

    Action based on user hitting F1

    I think it depends on the client and the version. In a vanilla Windows install, the GUI client uses F1 for help and F2 for run. In the CHUI they're reversed. Same goes for CHUI on non-Windows platforms. In our GUI app, we specify "v6keys=yes" in the [Startup] section of the .ini file. This...

    I'm also a little perplexed, as this post was actually more informative before the OP edited it.

    Question Profiling an AppServer

    Windows Server 2012 OE 11.6.3 32-bit I have an appserver that publishes a web service. I'm connected to the WSA with SoapUI to fire through a message. I'm trying to profile the code running in the appserver but I'm not getting any output. I feel like I'm missing something obvious; I'd...

    Question About Sysprogress Use Locking _sec-authentication-domain

    Good point. Also, if the users are query-only then a different user account can be configured that only has SELECT privilege on the needed tables. Best not to give users more privilege than they require. Hopefully the outsourcer can sort that out.

    Question About Sysprogress Use Locking _sec-authentication-domain

    Which version of OpenEdge 11.x are you running? According to your first post, user 424 (a remote client) was authenticated as "sysprogress". Regarding user 424, check promon 1 (User Control) and you should have the user's IP address and the PID on their system. You can check netstat on the...

    Comment New XenForo

    Looks good so far. Looks better on mobile than the previous version. And it looks like the site search is working again, so that's nice. :)
