Question:

What is "CA Gen Communication Base Manager"?  How do I know that it is installed?

Gen Construction Toolset & CSE

Answer:

The Communications Base Manager is code that checks license keys when generating for Windows, EJB, EJB Web Services, Internet, Web View, and ASP.NET. When a developer targets any of these environments via TP Monitor, the license is check by the Comms Base Mgr. It is delivered with the Toolset and CSE software. 
The license key is 2G35 listed in the ca.olf file and can be found in the list of licensed products on the toolset. The license is automatically installed whenever any of the above generation options are licensed.
Since it has the common generators, this option is required to do any code generations on Windows.
