Installer hangs

Post by sedprm » Tue Aug 12, 2008 11:36 am

I'm running the 1.0.8 self-extracting installer and it just hangs after I enter the PDSE library name, any ideas?

Try editing the file "install/install.rexx" under the CoZ HFS install directory, and add the line:

trace all

after the line:
parse arg installDir

Then change directory to the Co:Z install directory and enter this command:

./install/install.rexx

This should produce a Rexx trace, which you can send to me at info@dovetail.com and I'll try to see what is hanging.

The installation rexx script uses the "address TSO" command processor, which for some reason was returning the following error at this user's installation:

COMMAND BPXWRTCM NOT FOUND

The OP was able to manually finish the installation. If someone else sees this problem and their installation, or knows why "address tso" might be broken in this way, please let us know.

The problem turned out to be an ACF2 configuration problem. The command needs to be authorized for the user to access in ACF2.
