Administrator Invocation of a Presentation Manager ORS.EXE Program

       This article describes a method for users to invoke the
registration utility ORS.EXE in two different user versions.  One
version is for use by non-administrative users and the other version
is for use by administrators only.

      ORS.EXE is a utility that registers applications to run
seamlessly with OS/2* Office.  When the Presentation Manager* version
of ORS.  EXE is run, the "REGISTER" dialog will be displayed.
Currently, the "REGISTER" dialog box will allow all users (both
administrators and non-administrators) to select administrator-only
parameters, such as "/Sysreg", which registers applications as OS/2
Office System Registered (unremovable) applications.

      ORS.EXE will now provide the invocation parameter, "/admin".
Use of this parameter will cause ORS.EXE to display the
administrator-only version of the "REGISTER" dialog box.  When the
application is invoked without the "/admin" parameter, ORS.EXE will
display the general (non-administrator) version of the "REGISTER"
dialog box.  For example, when the ORS.EXE application is invoked
with the "/admin" parameter, the dialog box will display the
following parameters with any associated entryfields: target
subdirectory, history file, log file, system registered, and append.
When the ORS.EXE application is invoked WITHOUT the "/admin"
parameter, the dialog box will display the same parameters, except
WITHOUT the system reg...
