Package Com Mode settings for Connection Group RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a Sybase-Open-Client package whose "Com Mode" settings are set to Isolated.  The package also has a Sybase-Open-Client_UserConfig_Custom.xml which runs a vbscript.

    Here's where I am running into a problem...

    I am packaging another application (let's call it ABC-Reports and is an Excel macro) whose dependencies are MS Office 2013 (Com Mode set to Integrated) and Sybase Open Client (Com Mode Isolated).  If we create a Connection Group which includes ABC-Reports (Com Mode set to Integrated to match Office's), MS Office 2013, and Sybase-Open-Client (Com Mode Isolated), when the Connection Group is enabled, it will puke.

    How do we handle this?  Create another set of custom xml files for Sybase-Open-Client with a Com Mode to match Office 2013?

  • Requerement for a conneciongroup is that all packages must have the same com and object settings.

    User/deployment settings are published once... so you can not have ABC-Reports published with isolated AND integrated config file to the same client/user.
    Because you created Office 2013 with ODT (which is the only supported way to go), you must meet the settings from your Office package, which is integrated.

    Is there a problem changing ABC-reports to integrated?

    Roy,

    No problem changing ABC-Reports to "Integrated", but the problem is with Sybase-Open-Client; it was packaged as "Isolated" for use with another package.

  • Still, then you have to set those packages to too integrated.
