Al,


IIRC (and I'm pretty sure I do) the docs said that QINSTAPP *MUST* be owned
by QSYS.  I don't always believe the docs, and comments on the list indicate
otherwise...


I'm still flummoxed by this issue of LODRUN...  OT1H, you're lookin to pay
good money to a software vendor, and run their app or tool on your system...
But OTOH, you wouldn't trust their install program...?!?

Like you said, I think there's a bug in the logic here, as you necessarily
imply an awful lot of trust in the vendor, in the first place.

| A few points:
|
| 1).  If Brad's device (which I have contacted him on, and expressed an
| interest in purchasing) emulates a 7208, it supports LODRUN.  LODRUN was a
| cheap command to write, and was basically written in CL.
| 2).  I could be wrong here, but I don't think that there's an ownership
| restriction on LODRUN programs (which must be called QINSTAPP and be saved
| from QTEMP), although there are clearly run time restrictions.  I've
| probably written more QINSTAPP programs than anyone.  I am out of the
| office, so I am limited as to my ability to look up stuff.
| 3).  When I buy software, I am placing trust in my vendor.  (Maybe I'm
| stupid.)  So I do not consider this a security risk.  Clearly LODRUN is
| better tan following a run sheet that I could screw up.

|
| Thanks for the suggestion, I'll talk to my people about this.
| Should be pretty easy to add to the product.
|
| I have to ask, is there anyone on this list that considers CDs
| with LODRUN a bad idea to install on their AS/400?
