 OpenEdge Installation & Deployment

  • Show feedback and allow customization installing OE Classroom edition

    Currently the OE Classroom edition installs completely silently. There should be at least some feedback as to what is happening as currently people (including myself) think the installer has crashed, while in reality it is still installing/downloading...
  • Best Practise structure for sports2000

    I wasn't sure where to put this really, but decided this was the best place. Please can the DB structure for sports2000 be enhanced to follow modern best practise for DB administration? So for example, the tables and indexes are grouped by function...

    Currently t he Telerik controls (trial version) are shipped by default with OpenEdge installer, and there is no way to prevent them from installing. You need to manually uninstall the trial and install the licensed version after installing or upgrading...
  • Allow adjustment of AdminService ports on installation

    When installing multiple OpenEdge versions on the same machine, they all use the same default port/adminport settings for the OpenEdge AdminService. To change these you have to manually adjust the $DLC\properties\AdminServerPlugins.properties file....
  • Supply service-pack rollups for the current service pack

    Having to use two installers to get an up-to-date installation is a pain, and causes extra maintenance burden. You have to download two (large) packages, sit through two installation processes, and sit through them both again if you need to reinstall...

  • Simple license update tool

    It should be possible to update licenses without having to faff about installing on a different machine and then copying the cfg file across. A particular use case: We are testing 11.5 with a view to moving to it in production. We have been given a...

    Whenever OpenEdge prowin32.exe or prowin.exe crashes, we’ll find a “protrace.<PID>” file in applications current folder (PID is the process ID of the crashe OpenEdge process). Inside “protrace.<PID>” is many cool...
  • Separate per-product installer packages

    The current scheme of having one enormous installer that can install every product Progress makes (or a large subset thereof) is enormously inconvenient for common use cases. The new Custom Installer Bundle feature might mitigate the issue somewhat, but...

    In my experience automatic (prowin32, _progres, ...) session restart when an unhandled stop condition occurs is rarely useful and sometimes very annoying. It can cause sessions to endlessly loop on an error message with no other option than to use "end...
