Here are the commands that I executed in a command window. Adjust the paths as necessary.
set COBROOT="c:\program files\micro focus\net express\base"
cblbld c: \temp\compile
(make sure you have a space between the c: and the \temp\compile)
Here is the output:
ASCII Cobol Compilations Proceeding
Creating Directory c:\temp\compile
Logging progress to file c:\temp\compile\CBLBLD.LOG
COBOL compiler found in “c:\program files\micro focus\net express\base”
The system cannot find the path specified.
Target directory (c:\pshome\hcm90\CBLBINA) exists and is writable
Copying source files …
Building the COBOL targets …
That is all there is to it!
