Running a native COBOL application over the network with COBOL Server 4.0 or 5.0 works fine the first time. Any subsequent runs fail with the following:
Execution error : file ''
error code: 244, pc=0, call=1, seg=0
244 Licensing initialization error
This issue is resolved in release 5.0 Patch Update 9 and higher.
The workaround is to add the following entry in the run-time launch configuration (.mfcfg) file:
Servername is the name or IP address of the server and
MicroFocusSrv is the network share name on the COBOL Server 4.0 or 5.0 installation folder.
