reinstalling the Application doesn't help much :-| though, and I did copied the new PBACC115.DLL into the application directory but still no luck.
Acronis True Image 2019 just released!

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

Sounds like your issue is with: pbdwe105.dll

I would first check to see if your application is able to locate this file.

Possible areas to consider:

10.5 install is good.  You may want to try a reinstall if you suspect a bad install or corrupted files.

File is located where the application can find it.  If it is local with the application then should be fine.  If it is distributed over a network then make sure your enviroment is set up to look in that location.

A less likely issue but still something to consider is to make sure there are no permission issues going on which could prevent the application from accessing the files.

if you were upgrading from a previous version to version 10.5 then I suggest you run the migration assistant first as you may have some deprecated code.  This will allow you to make the changes and try again.  As always back up your application prior to any actual migration in case of failure.

Sounds like pbacc110.dll

actually, the problem went away after the application is rebuilt/recompiled using Windows 7 and inserting the DLLs into the setup InstallShield.

the Windows Update must have caused the broken link somehow :-|
Glad to hear it is working now.  I will have to keep this in mind if we ever migrate to windows 7.
