I am trying to install COBOL on emulated Alpha running on FreeAXP. I downloaded the cobol_compiler29.zip from the FTP site onto my Win10 host, wrote to an ISO, copied over to the Alpha. Unzip shows the right (and full) filenames but Product Install fails with:
PCSIUI-I-NOMATCH, no products were found matching: COBOL
I have tried everything I could think of (which is not much, when it comes to OpenVMS). I would greatly appreciate any pointers.
Total of 2 files.
The following are steps listed in the HP install guide:
$ SET DEFAULT SYS$UPDATE
$ SET PROCESS/PRIVILEGE=(BYPASS,CMKRNL,SYSLCK,SYSPRV)
$ PRODUCT INSTALL COBOL/VERSION=2.9 /SOURCE=[cobol29]
%PCSIUI-I-NOMATCH, no products were found matching: COBOL
%PCSIUI-E-NOPROD, no products were found on which to perform this operation
%PCSIUI-E-ABORT, operation terminated due to an unrecoverable error condition
Please let me know if there is anything else I need to do.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
