File protection

OpenEdge incorporates specific file-protection measures to accommodate files associated with OpenEdge add-on products, which are OpenEdge products released independently of a point or major OpenEdge product release. Add-on products provide functionality that enhances the OpenEdge software product set and ensures that you have the most recent PROMSGS files. All OpenEdge products use one centralized method to display Progress messages contained in the PROMSGS file. With each OpenEdge add-on product you install, an updated PROMSGS file is installed into the destination directory. Add-on installation processes ensure that if the add-on product contains a newer PROMSGS file than the associated release, the following activities occur:
*The add-on product's PROMSGS file is compared with the product's PROMSGS file to determine which of the two files is newer
*The newer file is copied to the OpenEdge directory
* Details about the installation and update of PROMSGS files
* Procedures to protect PROMSGS files from being overwritten
* Procedures to ensure PROMSGS files are synchronized
