Hi Placide,

Please make sure that your source files are not set as "Read-only"; proper permissions need to be in place too. Also make sure that your are deploying with the Full Build option.

As a plus, you can start PowerBuilder as an administrator and try again.

Please let us know if this fixed your problem.

Hi Placide,

I will work on reproducing your case. Meanwhile, and as a workaround, please do the following:

1) Review the timezone and locale of your OS.
2) Run PowerBuilder IDE as an Administrator and try again.
3) Make sure your files and/or folders are not "Read Only" and that they have the proper permissions.

Please do let us know if this fixed your error.

After deploying the application I noticed that the exe and pbd file do not have the current date. Even the pbl file does not show the correct date of modification. So I cannot move the new version to production if the date is not correct. 

*Reproduce Steps:
Make changes to a pbl.
Save the file.
Check the date of the file in the folder.
Deploy fully the application.
Check the date of the new exe and pbd files

Please let me know what is my issue. I can be reached at 805-279-2791. I left already few messages in the technical support voice mail.
