True. It gets back to the approach of others that used PartnerWorld to
download the new version.  Really, this is the best way to go IMO - though I
haven't ever used PartnerWorld, I have been to MSDN and used that to
download the latest version of tooling which works pretty darn slick.

It's interesting that IBM makes that download portion of PartnerWorld
chargeable. Doesn't promote getting their software into the hands of people
who already own it if you ask me.

If you're talking about having the program go out to the iSeries and check
the software license, then yes it could work for IBM to do it.  However, it
can't just be assumed that the user has a valid *current* license just
because they've got the product installed and have previously connected to
an iSeries.  WDSc is free if you have a *CURRENT* software subscription
contract.  Someone might have had it, but let it lapse.

My 2 cents . . .
