Hello all,
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.

Thanks in advance!
Regards,
Ravi

You don't provide much for us to go on here. For starts, post the exact commands and results that you get from those commands. That should give us enough to at least give you some ideas.

Thanks,
Dan

Make sure your path name is good. Look at the /SOURCE qualifier.

This what I did:
Copied the downloaded file to [tools]
$ unzip cobol_co_1.zip
$ create/directory [cobol29]
$ copy [tools]DEC*.*;* [cobol29]
$ dir [cobol29]

Directory SYS$SYSROOT:[COBOL29]

DEC-AXPVMS-COBOL-V0209-1453-1.PCSI$COMPRESSED;1
DEC-AXPVMS-COBOL-V0209-1453-1.PCSI$COMPRESSED_ESW;1

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.

All,
I got the installer to work by adding the sub-version/build to VERSION as below:

PRODUCT INSTALL COBOL/VERSION=2.9-1453 /SOURCE=[cobol29]

Thank you for taking the time to answer.
Regards,
Ravi

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
