QleActBndPgm accepts as a parameter being a pointer from a Resolve System
Pointer which would be a pointer to the current object.

It then issues an activation mark for the pointer to that object.

It then in turn issues a procedure pointer to the activation mark which is
what is actually called.

If you don't resolve to the service program, then yes, you would get the
same activation mark.

Alan,

Based on your assurances, I'll do more testing to see if QleActBndPgm()
behaves as you say. I thought I had already vetted it and found that the
procedure did NOT activate a new version of a service program, if
available.

Thanks,

Nathan.

Sorry, each time you call the api it gives you a new activation mark and
it
loads a new copy. If the service program has been changed (New version
moved in) it gets activation mark of new version so subsequent calls uses
the new version. I use this technology in many different ways. I have
installed it in 4 companies (Newer version) so I figure it works. I use a
user space with a timestamp that triggers the reload.
