New developer machine for Object Cobol 4.0.07
We have some legacy applications that are compiled with Object COBOL 4.0.07 which was installed on an older desktop (Windows 95)
I'm a support guy at work and make me a petition to prepare a new developer machine to compile Cobol
i'm now trying prepare a new developer machine, but i dont have the install medias. the install method is all manually, copy installation and configuration from productive to new machine including config.sys and autoexec.bat
i have tried several configurations Win95 & Win98, in fact i have a "new" machine with windows 95 (Pentium S 166Mhz) very similar to productive sometimes works and compiled ok but after some compile test stop working..
the message is:
error code: 112 PC=0 Call=1 Seg=0
and when compiler runs finish telling can't find the key (this is via parallel port)
and i'm setup same way IRQ=07 IO=0378-037F on BIOS parallel port mode SPP
i think the compiler not found the hardware key, the linking process works fine.
please can instruct me how to resolve this
i can kindly follow all your instructions

Object COBOL Developer Suite (OCDS) is a very old COBOL product from Micro Focus and was discontinued several years ago.
I would very much recommend we discuss upgrading this software to our latest version.
If you can email me at email@example.com, I'll put you in touch with someone who can advise you.
thanks for you answer, already Gael Sanchez is in touch with me and is working on your recommendation , upgrade to a new version.
Thanks a lot
Note: Gael contact me in spanish and is more convenient for us, best regards from mexico
