What apps are you using DSC for? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I would like to start generating a list of applications that people use DSC for, and am looking for input from all of you.

    In particular, I would like to know both the parent and child application involved plus how the child is involked.

    For example:
         Parent:  7Zip (any version)
         Child:  Adobe Reader (any version)
         Involked:  While in 7Zip, double click on a PDF file inside a package.  Adobe must be run from inside the 7zip virtual environment or it can't find the file.

    So let's hear all of the cases out there!   Probably one per reply would be very helpful.

  • Hello,

    Lotus Notes
    Basically "republishing it" however with a different pointer to a pre-execution script specific to generate a notes.ini for the user to a "domino-server" specific directory and to be used if the application reponsible wishes to have anything specific for their system.
