The last series of changes made to the GET_FILE_BOX were done in 2015 in order to deal with changes in Windows.  These changes and others would have been in PxPlus 2016 and not version 9 which came out in 2011 is no longer supported.

We suggest you try a newer/supported version of PxPlus and see if it resolves your problem.
Registration and Setup / Re: Why two Activation Keys?
« Last post by Mike King on October 16, 2019, 11:21:52 AM »
First off we STRONGLY recommend that you use current support versions of PxPlus.  Version 5 of ProvideX came out in 2001 -- that is 18 years ago and predates even Windows XP.

Next the ProvideX or "Installation Key" shipped with your order only activates enough of the system so you can perform an online product registration within 30 days of the date of install.  The install key is only temporary and ultimately you will need to get a permanent key by registering the product.  NOTE: You can enter all keys supplied with your product to temporarily enable the full functionality purchased for 30 days or until you register the install.

Registration of the software is done online.  PxPlus comes with the tools required to do an online registration, whereas for ProvideX you need to download the online registration tools.  Details on how to download/install these tools can be found at:  https://home.pvxplus.com/pgsrvr.pvp?pg=providex_activation

Again, using old unsupported ProvideX or PxPlus software is NEVER recommended.  Over the years we have made numerous changes to adapt to newer operating systems.  Running versions of ProvideX/PxPlus on operating systems that did not exist at the time of their release can result in unforeseen problems.

The 'AND' and 'OR' operators have the same precedence level, so they are evaluated left-to-right. In this case, it essentially works out to be:
Code: [Select]
if (1 or 0) and 0 then print "*"

In my opinion the following condition should print a star
Code: [Select]
if 1 or 0 and 0 then print "*"It is the same as
Code: [Select]
if 1 or (0 and 0) then print "*"or
Code: [Select]
1+0*0For better understanding we will add the brackets.
PxPlus doesn't print a star. I'm curious, what am I missing?

"Many companies buy new licenses then install old, sometimes unsupported, versions of PxPlus."

So if I order new keys for an old ProvideX ver5 user, and they will continue to use that older code, I should use the Activation Key not the PxPlus Key?

Also, for that user running old ProvideX v5 code, should I order Base or Pro?  Would Pro work on that old user?  Or is Base and Pro the same code wise?

We had plans to provide a means to send out announcements to PxPlus users however on discussions with a number of our clients we never went through with it as whatever news we send out may not be appropriate to the end users running PxPlus based applications.

For example announcing a new feature in the language may not be of any importance to a end-user of a 'canned' application until the application developers actually got around to using it.

We ultimately felt it could be more confusing and potentially problematic for the developers however we did leave the mechanism in place in case we decide otherwise in the future.
Wish List / Re: XML -> JSON CVS Translator
« Last post by Mike King on October 15, 2019, 05:20:32 PM »

I have been looking into adding a JSON output method to the XML object.  There are however a few challenges as not all XML and JSON structures can be accommodated.

One example is how to handle XML attributes as opposed to elements.  There really is no logical equivalent in JSON so how should attributes be included?  One option would be to ignore them, another might be to just include them in the JSON. 

There is also a question of structure.  For example in XML you could have:

  <address>123 main</address>
  <name>Fred Flintsone</name>

In XML you can have multiple tags of the same name in the same element (think HTML which is based on XML).  You cannot have multiple elements of the same name in JSON; you can have an array but you would lose the element order.

So basically, we are looking at what we could provide, however not all XML constructs can be mapped to JSON,
Thin Client/WindX / Re: Most Common Setup
« Last post by Mike King on October 15, 2019, 04:05:07 PM »

From what we know most of our clients use the PxPlus Simple CS to connect to a Windows server however some do use RDP depending on their needs.

Simple CS is generally easier to setup, uses less server resources, and is less expensive than the Windows Terminal Server or Citrix plus allows easier access and integration with the applications and files on the end-users workstation.

Another advantage with Simple CS is that the server is Host agnostic -- that is the workstation setup is the same regardless of the type of host (Windows, Linux, AIX, or MAC).

Hello Jeff,
I can't comment on what most developers are doing, but I've used WindX for most of my career.  From NTHost, to Application Server, to PxPlus Client-Server on multiple host OSes.  I now primarily use and recommend using the encrypted PxPlus CS with TLS 1.2 (or better) for non-web-browser based applications.

Best Regards,
Jeff Wilder
