Running OpenEdge

Select an icon from the OpenEdge Program Group to begin running your applications. Note that WebSpeed products might need additional setup requirements.
Caution: Never run OpenEdge products from the directories in which you installed them. Doing so could result in changes to the software that affect its proper operation.
For complete information about starting OpenEdge or WebSpeed products, see either OpenEdge Getting Started: Progress OpenEdge Studio or OpenEdge Getting Started: WebSpeed Essentials.
Note: Before you start an OpenEdge or an Application Server application, you must start the AdminServer. The AdminServer must be running before you can use the OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer to configure and manage your applications. For details, see Understanding and using the AdminServer.
