Macola Error - Macola7.cfg file found in data directory.

Macola Error - Macola7.cfg file found in data directory.

Macola Error - Macola7.cfg file found in data directory.

I am new to Macola.  I was asked to build a new appserver, and move everything from the old to the new.  I was hoping it was as simple as installing PSQL on the server, installing Macola 7.6.200 from client, setting up client, and copyinh data from the old server.  Not so it seems.  Anyone gone through this kind of transition who can guide me?

Here is our setup-

Installed on APPSERVER:
Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition Service Pack 2
Microsoft® .NET Framework Version 4.0.40305
Microsoft SQL Server Version 9.00.4035.00
Pervasive.SQL 9.50 Version
Starship 10.1 - V-Technologies, LLC – Server Manager

Installed on CLIENT:
Windows XP Pro SP3
Microsoft® .NET Framework Version 4.0.40305
Pervasive.SQL 9.50 Version
StarShip 10 Client Version
Macola Progression 7.6.200

Our appserver is about to die.  I know we are using outdated software, but this is a temp setup while we build our all-in-one DBA server.

Anyway, I was able to get progression up, I copied the Macola76 folder from the old server and it seemed to work, I can login with supervisor and user into the main company(001).  I imported some custom tabs, but when I click on say... Print Acknowledgement, I get error:


 The COBOL run-time message occurred:
  Application       : F:\Macola76\VBMacExe.exe(PID=00000FF8)
  Exception Number  : JMP0015I-U [PID:00000FF8 TID:00000B14] CANNOT CALL PROGRAM 'OEACKSCN'. CODE=0x7e PGM=VBMACEXE ADR=00405119
  Generation Time   : 11/09/2010(11:46:18)

  Time Stamp        : 03/14/2003(17:07:06)
  File Size         : 335872bytes

I get similar errors with each command.  There are probably some files i need from elswhere, if anyone knows.

I read here on TT, it may be unregistered fonts??  If I am missing anything, let me know.  Time is not on my side.  Thanks alot.

The error is more Macola related than PSQL related.  You might try posting in the Macola forum.
