First the system is vms8.3 with all current(ish) OS ECOs installed.
I ftp'd FORMSAVME0422.A-DCX_AXPEXE in binary form into both an ODS-5 & 2 disk, and when prompted I just hit return so the file will be extract into the current directory I get the same error. I've done this on both ODS5 & 2, it doesn't matter. This seems to only effect the DCX_AXPEXE files, as the ZIPEXE are fine -or- at least I can unzip them so at least I know they've transferred correctly. This is my first time encountering this problem.
BRUNO::JAMIE >>> run FORMSAVME0422.A-DCX_AXPEXE

The decompressor needs to know the filename to use for the
decompressed file. If you don't specify any, it will use the
original name of the file before it was compressed, and
create it in the current directory. If you specify a
directory name, the file will be created in that directory.
Try using a new account without any symbol definitions or logical names. I suspect that there is a lurking logical that matches a "file spec" being used by the decompression code. Try using a file spec with the extention rather than defaulting to only the name.
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.
