When a Visual COBOL installation fails, is there any way to get more information on what the installer was doing?
The following example shows how to manually install Visual COBOL Development Hub 2.1 on an AIX system:
1. ./setup_visualcobol_devhub_2.1_aix_systemp -extractonly
There should now be an install.pax in the current directory
2. pax -rf install.pax
This will extract the contents of the install.pax file, exposing the installer directory structure.
3. cd VisualCOBOL2.1
4. sh ./install.sh
If step 4 fails then re-run with sh -x ./install.sh to get additional debug output from the shell.
