Unable to change label properties of push button/hyperlink in Application Designer

I had the issue where when I opened up the Label tab of a push button on a page, the Label Type, Label Size are blank, Label Text shows up as Static Text. When I changed the settings, and clicked OK to save it. The change did not register.

The fix turned out to be to go to the Configuration Manager, then go to Client Setup tab, then check the “Install Workstation” checkbox, click OK or Apply.

Now restart Application Designer, the issue should be fixed now.

Missing or invalid version of SQL library PSORA32 (200,0)

I am installing PT8.53 and HCM9.2 on my 64bits Windows 2008 R2 box, using Oracle 11g 64 bits too. When I tried to access Data Mover, I got this error


There are quite some posts on the internet talking about this. Basically it’s because that you need a 32 bits Oracle client for Application Designer and Data Mover.

However it’s not very clear on those posts that what needs to be changed. After several tries, I found that we need to change the PATH variable to point to the 32bit client BIN directory  (before the 64 bits).

There is one post talking about change the short-cut property’s “Start in” value:


Unfortunately that did not work for me.

What I did was to run from command line, first set the PATH:



I created a bat file for this:




So my post here is to remind you to set the PATH right (have it point to 32 bits client first) when running Application Designer and Data Mover.
