    None.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: PCOMM users who utilize the  'STRPCCMD       *
    *                 PCCMD()' command.                            *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: If the user issues : STRPCCMD PCCMD     *
    *                      ('NET USE') then the PCOMM screen       *
    *                      will be erased and will not auto        *
    *                      refresh after the command is finished.  *
    *                      This is not the expected behavior.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    PCOM is working as designed in this case, however, there is a
    keyword "STRPCCMD_Pause" that can be used to solve such a
    problem but will not meet customer requirements for other data
    behavior in regard to STRPCCMD command.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Without changing the current behavior of "STRPCCMD_Pause"
    keyword, PCSCC.DLL and PCSPCO.DLL have been changed to check a
    registry key to satisfy the customer requirement as below.
    
    Add a registry string "STRPCCMD_Pause" and set its value to
    "Y" in registry key:
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\IBM\PersonalCommunications
    \CurrentVersion\PCSWIN]
    
    will enable the same feature as keyword "STRPCCMD_Pause=Y"
    in workstation profile, except the PCOMM 5250 session will get
    screen refreshed and not stopped after the command is issued.
    
    Limitation: This implementation is only for Japanese code page
    sessions, and only works when the registry string
    "STRPCCMD_Pause" has a value set to "Y"  and keyword
    "STRPCCMD_Pause" keyword does NOT appear in the .ws profile.
    (This implementation will become invalid when keyword
    "STRPCCMD_Pause" exists in the workstation profile no matter
    if it is set to "Y" or "N".)
    
    Fix scheduled for PCOM 6.0.6 Refresh Pack
