When the rules forming a package are completed, use the Service Package data instance to generate an ActiveX Dynamic Linked Library (DLL file) that calls the services from Windows-based systems.


Use the Application Explorer to see Service COM rules in your application. Use the Records Explorer to list all Service COM rules that are available to you.
