DFCONV command line fails with Error 114
In Net Express and Server for COBOL, the syntax to run the Data File Converter (DFCONV) command line is the following:
run dfconv profile-fname [input-fname] [output-fname]
In Visual COBOL or COBOL Server, running the above command line fails with the following error:
Execution error : file 'dfconvdll'
In Net Express and Server for COBOL, the DFCONV is a .lbr, which requires the RUN trigger program to execute it while in Visual COBOL and COBOL Server, DFCONV is a .exe. In other words, DFCONV must be executed without the RUN command:
dfconv profile-fname [input-fname] [output-fname]
Note: Since there is DFCONV.DLL in Visual COBOL and COBOL Server, the RUN command actually tried to run it and resulted to the Error 114.
