A few things you could try.

1.  Try simply regenerating the objects.

2.  You took a backup before migration right?  Make another backup and remigrate from 5.

3.  Still doesn't work?  Perhaps check out the demo of PB7 or PB6.5 if you have it and try migrating to that version first, and then to 8.

4.  Still happening?  Hopefully there aren't many DW that are causing the error.  Try redoing them or simply removing pieces until it works.  I would go for redoing them in PB8 though.

If still doesn't work after what Grumphy Canuck write,


go into the registry:

registry: HKEY_CURENT_USER--> SOFTWARE--> SYBASE-->
                                         POWERBUILDER--> PB 8--> LAYOUT--> DEFAULT

set the datawindow entry as empty string.

Open datawindow in PB 8.0.

WITH REGISTRY CAREFULLY AND DO NOT DELETE ANY ITEM IN REGISTRY.


Best regards
