Dear All,
I install the Compiler, and when I installed the COBRTL I have the message "Image version in target is higher than the Image version on CD"

Mahmoud,

You have *ONE* undefined symbol (from your first
message). What is it? What is the command and
resulting output?

Re: UNDFSYMS, Undefined symbol while linking COBOL Prog.

Can you possibly provide the data in a format that
is more VMS-friendly? I am at work and my desktop
is a VMS box...

Re: UNDFSYMS, Undefined symbol while linking COBOL Prog.

The releasenotes state, that a missing DCOB* symbol in LINK may indicate a missing COBRTL.
Did you install the right version of COBRTL? There are 2 versions (670A and 670B, for V8.2 of VMS the B version would by right.

Re: UNDFSYMS, Undefined symbol while linking COBOL Prog.

Mahmound,

this problem has been discussed in ITRC before, please see:

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=963687

The weak references are probably application-specific. It's just DCOB$IMAGE_INIT, which is the problem.

Re: UNDFSYMS, Undefined symbol while linking COBOL Prog.

Dear All.
I tried to install the last version 2.8 using the last CD_rom kit issued on apr,2006, but I faced same problem.
I tried to remove the Module cob_image_init from sys$library:starlet.olb and uninstall the COBOL, problem still there.
If I didn't have clear sys$library:starlet.olb to extract the module from it and apply it on the current library what I have to do ?????.
