Installing the Client

There is nothing on the AcuServer distribution media to install on the client machine. However, you should ensure that every client system that will use AcuServer has a licensed copy of the current ACUCOBOL-GT runtime. To check that your runtime is current, use the -v option on the runtime command line of the client machine. The runtime will display information (either at the command line or in a Windows message box) similar to the following:

ACUCOBOL-GT runtime version 8.1
Serial number 1234
Licensed for 2 user(s)
AcuServer client
Vision version 5 file system
Copyright (c) 1985 - 2008, Micro Focus (IP) Ltd.

Look for the line AcuServer client and a runtime version number that matches the AcuServer version. If either of these criteria is missing, the client machine will not be able to access data using AcuServer.
