Error running DOS-based COBOL in Windows 7

February 3, 2011 at 05:29:55
Specs: Windows 7 pro 32 bit, C2Duo, 4GB RAM,
I am trying to run a cobol program dos-based in windows 7. I am getting the error "cobol run time library not installed, file not found", then program closes.
Programs and files are on network. I had managed to make it work somehow, now it has stopped doing so, and I have no reason why.
I am running the batch file, which maps drives correctly, in compatibility mode, as administrator. It will run in XP mode/Virtual PC, but there are many users who would not be able to run it that way.
Thanks for any suggestion.

I'd guess it was the path if you did have it working.

I'd map a network share to each computer and then run it from a mapped drive, the program would have to be on the share and I'd guess only 32 bit systems would run it. Otherwise you'd have to run dosbox or setup a shared VM to run it vnc or remote desktop.
