 OpenEdge Installation & Deployment

  • WebSpeed requires administrator privileges on Windows

    As per knowledge base article 000001382, the WebSpeed broker on Windows needs to be started with a user that has administrator privileges. This is a gaping security hole allowing any error in application code to easily be elevated to compromise the...
  • make OpenEdge on Windows adapt to the dpi scaling factor

    Install (by default) the progress.exe.manifest and eclipse.exe.manifest file for high resolution screens with attribute dpiAware set to true to allow users to set the display scaling to greater 100%. For PDSOE, eclipse.exe.manifest is installed by default...
  • expose each and every OpenEdge IP port as product installation parameter

    Support defining each OpenEdge port as installation parameters, not just a subset. APs that have well-defined IP Port schemas by OpenEdge or application version, like to apply these port definition rules in order to secure against port conflicts and to...

  • provide feature to create an .msi installer

    Provide the means to create a custom .msi file, which includes the AP’s 3 rd party products and OpenEdge products such as Client Networking. Being able to create your own .msi is preferred over providing a merge module.
  • Please integrate OE Management with LDAP/AD

    I have been an openedge management user since version 1. The most annoying piece of the product is user management. I have multiple servers to deal with and every time we hired a new developer/admin, I would have to set up an account for them on multiple...
  • WebClient - Running Disconnected

    Today, WebClient requires an active network connection so upon app startup it can connect to a Webserver and check for application updates. After checking/updating the app it then starts the actual ABL application. If unable to connect to the WebServer...
  • provide an .msi Installer

    A number of customers and prospects standardize on corporate policies that require deploying at least the client machine installations using centralized Administration tools requiring the installers provided as .msi files.
