    just type 'pro' in a terminal and there you go... nice looking IDE, a bit retro maybe but for those vi lovers out there would do

  • Hi Marian... I Do it, but Linux, send me an error...

    maybe... I need configure de PATH and the services...

    Have you a simple manual???, PLEASE

  • You should start with the installation manual.

    http://communities.progress.com/pcom/docs/DOC-103525

  • The command pro, works, but send me an error just like this "This Version of Progress requires a startup procedure"

    later, try with the database sports, I type.

    pro sports, but Progress say this... You don't have permission to connect a database on $DLC.

    what I need to do now???

    HELP

  • You cannot connect to a database residing in DLC directory. Create a copy of sports database in another direcotry and then connect to this new copy.

    this usually means you don't have a development license installed, maybe just the database server was set-up on that linux box... try to run `proenv` and then `showcfg` will show you the current products installed, if you don't see any '4GL Development System' there then you can't do any development on that box, it will however allow you to run compiled code but then you have to provide the start-up program like `pro -p myApp.p`

  • Hi,

    the databases in the installation directory are template databases used for creating your own database.

    Use the command prodb to create your own database.

    Sample:

    prodb mysports2000 sports2000

    Regards,

    Torben

  • at a minimum, you need to set an environment variable DLC to where you installed 10.2B and you need to add "$DLC/bin" to you PATH environment variable.

    export DLC=/opt/progress/102b

    export PATH=$DLC/bin:$PATH

    then, in some suitable directory you can create a database by making a copy of the ones we provided, or a copy of some other one you have. thusly:

    prodb demo demo

    there are several sample databases provided.

    to use the database in single-user mode

    pro demo

    to use the datbase in singleuser mode and run a 4gl program

    pro demo -p program.p

    to start a database server in mulituser mode

    proserve demo

    to stop the server

    proshut demo -by

    to use a database in multiuser mode

    mpro demo

  • I can do it...

    I never insert the other keys for the installation...

    in this moment my Progress works so good.

    THANKS EVERYBODY
