Forms V4.0 on IA64 OpenVMS 8.3

We get an error when doing a Forms extract from a library as follows:-

$forms extract object /object=IV120_form IV120

%DCL-W-IVVERB, unrecognized command verb - check validity and spelling
\CC\
%FORMS-E-EXECERR, Error attempting to EXEC a command.
-FORMS-I-ERRNO, bad block address.

This is a Alpha to IA64 migration test.

Has anyone got these errors before or know a solution?

thanks, Pat.

Pat,

do you have a C Compiler installed ? The %DCL-W-IVVERB warning seems to indicate, that FORMS is trying to issue a CC command to invoke the C compiler.

Volker,

You were correct, we needed the 'C' compiler, after installing it the error didn't reappear.

thanks,
