SYS$SET_PROCESS_PROPERTIESW returns BADPARAM

Hello.

I believe that my interpretation of the use of SYS$SET_PROCESS_PROPERTIESW must be awry. When attempting to set the permanent parse style to EXTENDED, I am receiving a SYSTEM-F-BADPARAM.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Attached is TEST2.FOR that breaks this down to just the service call. I am using Fortran-77 under OpenVMS V7.3-2 on an Alpha system.

I think you want some %VAL()s around the parse-style and value arguments. They are passed by value, not by reference.

Thank you so very much.
That was it. Sometimes one misses the most obvious of solutions.

Much obliged.

IOS = SYS$SET_PROCESS_PROPERTIESW(0,0,0,
+ %VAL(PARSE_STYLE),
+ %VAL(STYLE_VALUE),
+ %LOC(PREV_STYLE_VALUE))

Thank you for your assistance.
