In which I recover somewhat gracefully

In my previous post, In which I kick myself, I pointed out the rather obvious but belated point that databases, especially samples, that use the Midas LSX should recognize whether Midas is installed and make that point rather than simply failing. That may be a simple realization, but it took a lot of work to fix in a reasonably elegant and comprehensive way. Fortunately, the code may be useful to others, especially those who have an LSX to install. One thing I don't show in the video is that the page with instructions could easily include the appropriate files to install. That would not make sense for the samples, but might make a lot of sense for a customer who wanted to add the script and page to a database using Midas or another LSX.
The video is only a minute and a half, or you can download the Export to CSV sample from the Midas LSX samples page to see this in action, or check out the code at mini-lessons.info/MIDAS19.
