Access Client Solutions (IBM ACS) and STRPCCMD Published by: Bob Cozzi on 24 Aug 2015 view comments(2)

When moving to Windows 10 (eventually) I'm worried about a core application that my customers use. This app is a PC (Windows) App that is launched via STRPCCMD. If my client's move to ACS instead of Client Access on Windows 10, then I'm concerned whether or not STRPCCMD will actually do anything.

So far, the only information I can locate is the following:

"When STRPCCMD is used with the 5250 emulator in IBM i Access Client Solutions, the maximum command length that may be specified for the PCCMD parameter is now 1023 characters."

This is great news.

But has anyone tried using STRPCCMD with an ACS client on any version of Windows; specifically Windows 10? If so, does it work as expected?

Myself, I only use the new ACS on Apple MAC OS X. And thus far, the STRPCCMD does nothing--doesn't seem to work at all with Apple. (And yes I ran STRPCO as necessary; no messages there either.)

I have a small program that opens Windows Explorer for a specific directory that still works even after switching to IBM i Access Client Solutions and upgrading to Windows 10.
