COBCH0865 : Failed to find system program "acufh" (Visual Cobol r3 trial)

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 20 January 2011]

Hi.

I am trying to create a VISION data file (this is a new supported feature in VCr3).
However, when I include the necessary support : $SET CALLFH(acufh)
I get an error : COBCH0865 : Failed to find system program 'acufh'.

I've tried everything I can think of, adding paths, copying to project directory, adding to the VS project, but the error persists.

Does anybody have an idea if/how this can be solved ?
This is the 1 month TRIAL version.

Thanks,

  • chrisg/rzack, thanks for your responses.

    I have created a "native COBOL application" and this does work indeed.

    So the misunderstanding was my assumption that VISION files would be natively supported in managed code using the CALLFH(acufh) switch.

    It looks like a switch to VC (for me), requires conversion of all files from Vision to the native Micro Focus format as I don not see any advantage switching from Extend to VC and sticking with "native COBOL application".
