NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       The name of the compressed file will be kit_name-dcx_vaxexe
       for OpenVMS VAX or kit_name-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha.
       Once the file is copied to your system, it can be expanded
       by typing RUN compressed_file.  The resultant file will
       be the OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file which
       can be used to install the ECO.

An ECO kit exists for ACMS Desktop V2.3 for OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2. 
This kit addresses the following problems: 

   ACMS Desktop V2.3 ECO3 fixes the following problem:

   o Problem

   There is a problem if a version 2.0 or earlier SHOW_DESKTOP_USERS.EXE
   is run against a V2.2 or V2.3 ACMS Desktop server. It will corrupt the
   memory of the server process. There will not necessarily be an indication
   of a problem at the time that the older show_desktop_users is run.
   Some time later after additional system activity it will result in a
   process crash. The symptom of the crash will vary depending upon the
   state of the process when the corruption occurred.

   o Solution

   Additional checks have been added to the ACMS Desktop server to protect
   its memory from the effect of a V2.0 or earlier show_desktop_users.exe.

   If an older version of show_desktop_users is run against the ACMS Desktop
   server with this ECO3 installed, the server will log a marshalling error
   to the software event log. The server will ignore the request and the
   older client show_desktop_users will fail to complete.

   In order to obtain a show_desktop_users report, a version that matches
   the version of the ACMS Desktop server should be used.


For an OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 installation of ACMS Desktop V2.3 ECO3
(ACMSDI_V5503023.A), please follow these instructions:
