PrimalScript 2016 VBS compiled to EXE on XP/POSReady 2009

Post by PrairieDawg »

Product, version and build: PrimalScript 2016, Version 7.2.94
(*** Please do not write "latest" as a version, specify a version number ***)
32 or 64 bit version of product: 32
Operating system: Windows 7
32 or 64 bit OS: 32 bit

I recently learned that the .vbs scripts I was compiling to exe, which ran fine on VMware Windows 8 did not run when used on the real target of XP or POSReady 2009 systems.

I found article viewtopic.php?t=8703 and tried the solution recommended, but I still have issues with my .vbs to .exe builds reporting "not a valid Win32 application..."

Question: Do I need a newer version of the "Windows XP Script" file for PrimalScript 2016?

Well, PrimalScript 2016 doesn't really support Windows XP anymore. Support for XP was dropped when Microsoft ended support for Windows XP.
That being said, the xp hosts *should* work, even though they are unsupported.
If you get a "not a valid Win32 application" message you most likely are building for 64 bit. Make sure you select a 32 bit engine.
