About June/July of this year, I finally got around to installing EC 188.8.131.52. My old version was 4.3.2.
New version worked just fine at connecting to the mainframe from my PCs (desktop and lap top).
This past weekend, for the first time, I needed to download some programs from the mainframe. I tried several approaches (DSOURCE, DSYSTRANS, NATUNLDO). Always got the same error message about something missing.
So, I clicked on PROCS. Nothing. Looked in the appropriate (at least for the old version) folder; no subfolder for PROC.
Okay, the obvious assumption was that something was wrong with the install. Uninstalled 4.5.1 and re-installed it. No procs.
Finally, gave up, uninstalled 4.5.1 again and re-installed 4.3.2, which of course works fine for downloads.
Question. Outside of the different color scheme, what enhancements am I missing out on (SYSOBJH downloads?). Is it likely I received a bad CD? Was there some procedure I missed that would have been required to uninstall 4.3.2 then install 4.5.1?
P.S. had to re-submit this. Turns out that lap top as a single word is a restricted word. I had to change it above to two words. Hopefully this will be acceptable to the “bad language censor”. Am I missing something? Is this a “bad” word in some language?
