GV questions

Postby ym58 » 25 Jan 2011

Is a GV system independent :
1- from one WS to another WS ?
2- from one MC instance to another MC instance ?
3- not at all, for it is a windows_based DLL and it is set and prevails once for all ?

What I simply mean is : should a particular GV be set in a particular WS, will it be set for all WS and/or all MC instances ?

Don't hesitate to ask me to to clarify my question if necessary.
Thanks.

Dear ym58,

For every WS and for all MC instances the same memory segment is used: Shared Data Segment. In other words, dll is independent but it uses Data segment shared by various applications that run as separate processes. All applications that call this DLL share this data segment - allowing values to be shared between all instances of MC and third-party applications such as Microsoft Excel.

That's all clear for me, now.
Thanks, Dave.
