    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The PCSWS session reads LastExitView    *
    *                      infromation from the PCSWIN.INI file    *
    *                      even if LastExitViewFromINI registry    *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Even if LastExitViewFromINI registry key is set to 'F' false,
    the PCSWS profile is selected from the PCSWIN.INI instead of
    the .WS file. This prevents LastExitView value configured per
    session from being reflected on the desktop.
    

Problem conclusion

  • PCSWS.EXE has been changed to verify the location from where
    LastExitView value should be read.
    
    Fix scheduled for PCOM 6.0.8 Refresh Pack
