About Customization Studio

Every customer wants their applications to be tailored to their specific needs. But adapting an application, and then maintaining multiple versions of the same application, is a costly use of resources.

Customization Studio lets end users customize the application themselves. They can re-arrange screens, customize reports, translate texts, etc... No development skill is required.

The development team don't invest time or effort on personalization: Customization Studio is a ready-to-use solution that makes any PowerBuilder application customizable in hours. There is no need to distribute or disclose the source code: end users customize an executable copy of the application!

About PBProtect

PBProtect has been developed by Gian Luca De Bonis, lead architect and principal developer of Enable and Runtime Explorer, and is distributed worldwide by Novalys.

This product was initally developed by De Bonis for internal use to protect his work.
The growing presence of decompilers for PowerBuilder has prompted a desire from our clients for solutions to protect their PB source code.
In response, we decided to launch PBProtect as an independent product.
