Allow configuration of the PI OPC DA Server's ProgID
The ProgID of the 2015 PI OPC DA Server is OSISoft.OPCDA2.DA.1, while the ProgID of the 2010 PI OPC DA Server is OPC.DA.1.
Existing client tools that pointed to the 2010 PI OPC DA server will need to be reconfigured to point to the new ProgID after the PI OPC DA server is upgraded to 2015.
While this is done because of an architecture change between the 2010 and 2015 servers, potentially necessitating changes to be made to the client application, it is still desirable in some cases to point it to the new server without changing the ProgID.

I've been caught out with this. I can't make remote users modify their calls, so I can't upgrade.

Changing the ProgID from OSI.DA.1 to OSISoft.OPCDA2.DA.1 causes many problems. The program is inflexible. A registry key or configuration file would solve the problem. When will you implement this improvement?

Very important for customers when upgrading to the latest OPC DA Servers.
