Starting the Windows client process

Start the OpenEdge client process on your Windows machine by running the prowin32.exe executable. The Windows executable includes support for the DataServer.
You can create a program icon for the OpenEdge client process. On the command line for the program icon, enter the following information:
*The executable
*The schema holder name
*The connection parameters required by the remote DataServer configuration
For example, a command line for an OpenEdge client process that you use to access an MS SQL Server database might look like this:
prowin32 mssholder -RO -db demo -dt MSS -ld demo -H host1 -S oserviceA
-U bob -P bobpass
Create a program icon for each unique set of connection parameters. See Connecting a schema holder at startup for command-line information and more examples.
