    Set

    What does "set" mean?

    Context:
    It will be difficult for Viagra to live up to expectations raised by all the stories about its effects. Even if it disappoints somewhat, Pfizer's place in health heaven is set for years to come.
    (Viagra is the first FDA-approved pill to treat impotence)

    Thanks Francois.

    RonBee, I suggest you adduce the definition that fits the context most.
