Question/Problem Description
Which VST will say whether a database has a Workgroup or Enterprise license?

Is there a VST which would tell whether a database is Workgroup or Enterprise?
Steps to Reproduce
Clarifying Information
Error Message
Defect Number
Enhancement Number
There isn't any VST which would explicitly say whether a database has a Workgroup or Enterprise license.
Option 1:

Run the following command in the command shell on Windows:

type %DLC%\progress.cfg | findstr -c:"Adv. Ent" -c:"Enterprise RDBMS"

or under Linux/Unix the following command can be used:

more $DLC/progress.cfg | grep -e "Adv. Ent" -e "Enterprise RDBMS"

If the output is 'empty' then it isn't an Enterprise database, so it is a Workgroup.

Option 2:

Use VST for '_Code-Feature' which will list all available database features, for example:

FOR EACH _Code-Feature:
IF _CodeFeature_Supported = "1" THEN
DISPLAY _CodeFeature_Name.

If the code above will list "Large Files", then it is an Enterprise database (because Large Files are not supported with a Workgroup license).
