Thin Client/WindX / Re: Simple CS Client on V17

Hi all,

I worked it out.
V17 ini file was missing the IPV4 only line.

Thin Client/WindX / Simple CS Client on V17
« on: May 01, 2021, 11:39:14 AM »
We have been using Simple CS Host and Client since it was introduced.
However I simply cannot get it to work with V17
Windows Server 2016 and Windows server 2019.
On the Server 2016 we have V16 installed in ...HIT\pvx and the Simple Client service running..
We've installed V17 in ..HIT\pvx17 and cloned the application icons, stopped the V16 service, started the V17 host from the desktop and changed the start folders in the application start icons.
I see the client screen flash up on the desktop and it dies straight away.

On the Server 2019 we've installed V17 into ..HIT\pvx and setup the service and created the icons the same as our V16 server.
when I try to start the application I see the same client flash on the screen and the client dies.

I am thinking there is a difference in V17 from V16, but what....?

If I start the V17 host on the desktop from the Pxplus start menu I can start the simple client from the start menu.

Clearly I am missing something here, but what?

You can also define a generic text Local printer - yourname VIEWER - on port NUL. eg name the printer - MyApp Viewer
This is also available for PDF. EG Myapp PDF

Thin Client/WindX / Re: Client-side FID(0)
« on: January 12, 2021, 05:47:05 PM »
in the past we had a requirement that a specific computer be assigned a specific fid so that a user could print to a specific printer but in the long run we found that to be cumbersome and restrictive.
We now have multiple methods of assigning fid.
A 'next' available from a fid pool
A range of fids dependant on a subnet
A specific fid based on computer id
A specific fid based on the user login - either from the local computer login name or domain login name or the application login name.
All this is controlled and assigned at the STARTUP or Application login.
Ultimately we don't really care what the fid actually is so long as it is unique.

If the user starts multiple sessions on the PC do you expect each session to have a different FID or the same FID?

Registration and Setup / Installing in Azure Windows Virtual Desktop
« on: September 06, 2020, 10:48:41 PM »
We are going to do a trial migration for a small end user (only three users) to Azure Windows Virtual Desktop.
I wonder has anyone done this yet or have any experience or tips?
We are going to test in the 'Hosted Pool' environment first.
If that is not successful then we will test in the individual desktop environment.


ODBC / Writing to data file from PxPlus ODBC in Excel
« on: May 08, 2020, 02:59:41 AM »
Hi All,

I remember a few years ago that I worked out how to use the ProvideX ODBC to update a Providex file from Excel.
1. Populate Excel using the Providex ODBC from dictionary defined file.
2. Modify a cell and then write that row back to the ProvideX file.
3. Delete a row and that 'record' would be deleted from the ProvideX file

I just can't remember what the ProvideX ODBC configuration was to achieve this.

Has anyone done this and care to share?


Registration and Setup / Re: PDF port range?
« on: March 16, 2020, 01:52:24 AM »
Apologies if I'm over stepping but....Wow, I don't know about Adobe Ports but if you are saying all those ports are open to the outside world I'd be seriously looking at Simple Client Server.
That's an open invitation to get hacked.
The company insurers would not be happy if a more secure installation was possible and not implemented.
It's very easy to change from WindX to CS.
You only need a single port open that you can lock down.
Just my 10cents

Nomads / Re: How to exit a panel with an <Enter> key
« on: January 29, 2020, 04:09:00 AM »
I got it.
I had previously added post display logic to close the panel after 10 seconds. I've removed that and the <ENTER> works as expected now.
Thanks again.

Nomads / Re: How to exit a panel with an <Enter> key
« on: January 29, 2020, 04:05:22 AM »
Thank you.
I added the button and set the default property.
The tab stop shows the button to be the first control so I assume that control is active when I press the <ENTER> key.
I must be still missing something.
How/where do I set the on-change logic?

Nomads / How to exit a panel with an <Enter> key
« on: January 29, 2020, 01:39:09 AM »
hi Folks,

A really, really dumb question.....
I have a really simple panel. All it does is display an image in the Pre-Display logic
All I want to do is have the panel close when I press the <ENTER> key.
Currently it only closes on <F4>
Normally I'd have an Exit or Close button or <F4> to close the panel.
Never wanted to do this before.

00120 LET S$=ARG_1$
00140 LET STK_PHOTO$=%PATH_DATA$+"ic_images/"+CVS(S$(1,25),3)+".png"
00160 LET STK_PHOTO$=%PATH_DATA$+"ic_images/noimage.png"
00180 RETURN


Is this update supposed to be available via the online update manager or is it a full install?
It is not appearing in the online update.

Thanks guys.

I'll pass this on.
Funnily enough I did suggest upgrading to latest version a couple of weeks ago to avoid compatibility issues  :-[

Ubuntu version 18.04.3 and Pxplus version 10
