Installation on Windows Platforms

The Windows installation requires little interaction; the setup program copies the files into a directory you designate, or C:\Program Files\Micro Focus\extend x.x.x (where x.x.x is the version number) by default. On 64-bit machines, 32-bit executables are installed to C:\Program Files (x86).

Before you run an installation, you should ensure that you have your product codes and product keys, and the product media to hand. Refer to the appropriate installation instructions below.

Also, you should ensure that you do not have another version of the extend Interoperability Suite referenced in the PATH system environment variable, as having more than one version specified may cause unexpected results.

After the installation is complete, if you have installed both the compiler and runtime, you can begin to compile and execute your COBOL programs. Basic compilation and execution techniques are described in Compiling Your Programs and Running Your Programs.

Note: If you move or delete any .dll files that have been installed, your products may not run as expected.

AcuBench and AcuXDBC™ must be installed locally (on the client). Server-side products such as AcuServer™, AcuXDBC™ Server and AcuConnect® are to be installed only on server machines.
