Replacement And Deletion of Objects From Closed Organizers

      This article describes a method for an OfficeVision*/2
(OV/2) to delete/replace an OV/2 object in an OV/2 organizer.  There
needs to be a way to delete/replace OV/2 objects from New Icons
Folder while OV/2 is not running and while OV/2 is running and the
New Icons Folder is closed.

      Having the ability to delete/replace objects in the New Icons
Folder would be especially useful to System Administrators during
OV/2 System Installation.  If a mistake is made in the registration
of a template, the System Administrator can simply re-run the OV/2
Batch Registration utility, ORS.EXE, and delete/replace the original,
incorrectly registered template, without having to completely
re-register all OV/2 templates again.

      Create an API that can be used to delete/replace an object in
an OV/2 organizer while the organizer is closed. This API will be
used by either OV/2 applications or related executable files such as
the OV/2 Batch Registration Utility, ORS.EXE.  ORS.EXE will use the
API to delete/replace registered templates in the New Icons Folder.

      Replacement of objects in a closed organizer will allow the
OV/2 Batch Registration Utility, ORS.EXE, to replace OV/2 templates
while OV/2 is not running.  Replacement of objects in a closed
organizer will allow ORS.EXE to replace OV/2 templates while OV/2 IS
running, but the New Icons Folder organizer is closed.  Replacement
