Run-time Configuration for Intermediate and Generated Code

If you build your application to .int or .gnt files, the run-time configuration is not built into the application, regardless of whether you use the IDE or the command line for the build, unless you also build your own trigger program using the IDE.

Applications that are packaged in this way look for a application configuration file on startup. See the Related Information for how to create an application configuration file.

When you deploy an application packaged with one of the supplied trigger programs you must ensure that the environment variable COBDIR is set on the end-user's system. For example:


where path can be any folder on your file system such as, for example, c:\cobol\rts.

Also, you need to add %COBDIR%\bin to the PATH environment variable.
