I have a user with 64-bit Windows Ultimate SP1, Dell OptiPlex 9110, that cannot run a program using C$SYSTEM. As soon as the CALL C$SYSTEM command is executed it fails. Other users not having this problem, but I am remote, its not clear if the other users have Windows Ultimate. I don't experience the behavior on my Dell T1700 WIndows Professional o/s. Has anyone else seen this? Is there another method to execute a user inputted acucobol program name that works? Thanks out there! Hope I can help you guys one day.
Sample of the code:
02 FILLER PIC X(44) VALUE
"wrun32.exe -c \bi\data\cblconfi ".
02 RUN-PROGRAM PIC X(30).
*************the program to run is an Acucobol .acu file, the application automatically appends .acu to the program name they've entered.
05 command-flag pic 99 value 72.
*******Command-flag values: 1 Async; 2 No I/O; 4 Maximized; 8 Minimized
*******16 Compatibility 32 Hidden 64 Shell
05 command-flag-min-compat-shell pic 99 value 88.

CALL 'C$SYSTEM' USING RUN-COMMAND
