E-COB: Execution error : file '' error code: 245, pc=0, call=1, seg=0 245 There are no valid product licenses (Doc ID 2538330.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 25, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.56 and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)
Generic UNIX
Linux x86-64


Applicable to :  PeopleTools 8.56.15 and higher, PT 8.57.05 and higher, PT 8.58 and higher releases, with Visual COBOL compiler ( does not apply to net express or server express compilers )

Sample Environment:
PeopleTools 8.57.05
Visual COBOL server for windows

Issue / Scenario1:
Machine A is a test / development machine, which has the visual COBOL compiler / visual cobol build tools for windows, with valid full license file.
Machine B is a production machine, which has COBOL server for windows / runtime only, with valid runtime license file.

1. Compile COBOL for PS_HOME on machine A.
2. Run the COBOL test process PTPDBTST on machine A and runs to success.
3. Delete CBLBINA from the PS_HOME on machine B /production machine.
4. Copy entire CBLBINA to PS_HOME on machine B /production machine.
5. Run the COBOL test process PTPDBTST on machine B.  The following error is received.

Scenario 2:

Machine B has Visual COBOL Server for windows installed.  All the above mentioned steps in Scenario1 are completed. But when any COBOL process is being run, the same / above mentioned error message is received. 

Scenario 3:

There is an existing cblbin(a/e/u) from which COBOL processes are being run successfully. Due to a requirement (e.g tax updates) to recompile COBOL programs, COBOL is being compiled using delivered cblbld script and some COBOL programs fail to compile.  In the meantime, when COBOL processes are run from the existing cblbin(a/e/u), they are failing with the same/above mentioned error message.
