Editing a Host Program Definition

You can edit an existing host program definition (HPD). Also, when your requirements for a new HPD are similar to an existing HPD, you may find it easy to duplicate and modify an existing HPD.

Note If you edit or delete a host program definition on which existing task definitions are based, for the task definitions to remain valid, you must make corresponding modifications to them.
