Compiling with the native compiler option --intel caused an immediate runtime MAV. Why is this?
After investigation by our development team it appears the problem on Windows when running programs compiled with –n or --intel is caused by Windows machines that have Data Execution Protection (DEP) enabled for all processes. Please set the following runtime configuration variable: - USE_EXECUTABLE_MEMORY TRUE When set to "TRUE", this variable enables a COBOL program compiled for Native Code (-n compiler option) to run on a Windows machine that has Data Execution Protection (DEP) enabled for all processes. The default value is "FALSE".
