I'm at a loss... We have some legacy applications that are compiled with Object COBOL 4.0.32 which was installed on an older desktop. The desktop recently died and I'm now trying to install the compiler on a newer machine. The machine is WinXP SP3 with 1GB RAM. Nothing is running on it and I've disabled NAV, the firewall and everything in the BIOS set-up that looked like it might get in the way.
I was able to install COBOL 4.0.07 and the WinSDK without a problem, but trying to run the 4.0.32 Update keeps throwing an error when it gets to "Checking Configuration...":
Execution error: file 'UPDATE' error code: 114, pc=0;call=1,seg=0 (Signal 11)
I have tried running it in Compatibility mode and unchecking the "Protect my files" option under "Run As" as well as running it as Administrator. I have also tried Safe Mode in XP, a Win98 Virtual machine, running it from the command prompt, and I removed a 512MB RAM chip to see if it was an issue with too much memory. Oh and I did add the Update.exe to the "DEP" exception list.
I've googled the issue every which way I can think of, but so far nothing has helped. Oh and I had a colleague try installing it on another older desktop running WinXP SP2 and she ran into the same issue, so I don't think it's machine-specific.
Also, I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong place!
