    I need to use an old dos problem for reference only. My operating systems is windows XP. Everytime I do the .exe file I get an error message that says Cobol runtime library not installed. What is the problem? Any help will be appreciated. :)

    I think you need to read the mesage! :D Obviously, there was a run-time library that was used with the application in DOS, and you don't have it, or you don't have a path to it.

    I ran it on my old windows 98 without any problems. How can I check to see if it's the path or the file missing?
