i am running cobol server. I have COBDATA set as an environment variable system wide (this is a development box). my project is managed code multiple output. If I open a Visual Cobol command prompt and execute the program, the files that the programs references are found. If I double click the program to run it cannot find the files even though it can see COBDATA.
Is this normal behavior?
the Path variable had three lines pointing to bin, binn64 and bin64. Now the cobol program will run from the file explorer
There is no managed version of the RM file handler so file I-O for RM files will be directed to the native RM file handler acufh.dll which is in the bin folder and does require a PATH setting in order for it to be located.
Are you running on the same machine on which COBOL Server is installed or are you running from a different machine which is mapped to the COBOL Server machine?
I have all my application binaries in D:\binaries and am running them from there.
Cobol Server is installed on C:\Program File(x86)\Micro Focus\COBOL Server
All of this is running on a windows server VM.
What is the file status being returned on the open? Is it a 35?
What type of file is it?
What product version are you using?
On the server I am running 2.3
On my dev machine I am running 2.3
I've created a program that demonstrates the issue. Shall I open a support ticket for this?
