Object IDs of Network applications


The following text is taken from the readme file from the FIXNETAP.ZIP 
package from Phil Dumitru with permission of the author (see EMail 
Addresses): 
"The object ID of our Network Apps folder is this: 
<\NETAPPS\NETAPPFLDR> 
The object IDs inside the folder are in this format: 
<\Primary Domain Contoller\Application name> 
Example: 
Primary Domain Controller is LSBUF165 
Application name is TEST123 
object ID for this program object in the Net Apps folder is 
<\LSBUF165\TEST123> 

Note:  Application name is defined at the top of the Identity page in the 
       settings notebook for the Public Application definition. 
 
 Frankly, I don't know what happens if the folder is served up by the 
 Backup Domain Controller rather than the primary.  Maybe the first part 
 of the object IDs change to the BDC name? 
 Also, note that if you're trying to change settings on a Windows app to 
 Enhanced mode, this program alone will not do it.  You must also take 
 this step once (on the server if the .EXE is there), before this program 
 will work: Drill down to the .EXE file itself using the DRIVES object, 
 open it's setings notebook, and change the settings on the .EXE to 
 Enhanced mode.  If you haven't done this, the program object you're 
 trying to manipulate will automatically be set to Standard mode.  This 
 bug is what drove me to ask the original question about whether a program 
 could perform the same function. 
 The indispensable IBM Redbook IBM OS/2 REXX From Bark To Byte has a 
 program for listing object IDs (see page 81.)  On my PC it lists the 
 objects in the Net Apps folder last.  If you don't have this book, 
 absolutely get it. 
 Hope this helps."
