Error description

  • PCOM 6.0.4 on Windows 7 64bit
    
    Started a PComm session, and tried to upload ppppp.exec from
    c:\users\ibm_admin\documents up to my A-disk.  I typed
    "ppppp.exec" into the PC file name blank, typed "ppppp exec a"
    into the host file name blank, selected binary transfer type,
    and clicked "Add to List".  So far, so good.  Then I selected
    the item in the transfer list and saw that PComm had recorded
    the proposed transfer correctly in the transfer list.  Again,
    so far, so good.  Then I clicked "Send".  Absolutely nothing
    happened.  PComm did not launch IND$FILE MODULE in the host
    session.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED: All users of IND$FILE file transfer utility  *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: IND$FILE file transfer utility is not   *
    *                      always invoked when transferring files  *
    *                      to a VM/CMS host.                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a 3270 emulator session is opened by clicking on a .WS
    file shortcut and a IND$FILE tranfer to a VM/CMS host is done
    using the File Transfer GUI, no action is performed when the
    user enters the PC file name and host file name and clicks
    the Send button.
    
    The PC file lookup failed due to using the current directory
    of the .WS file shortcut instead of the DefaultDirectory
    specified in the .WS profile file.
    

Problem conclusion

  • PCSXFER.DLL has been changed to use the DefaultDirectory for
    IND$FILE file transfer as specified in the .WS profile.
    
    Fix scheduled for PCOM 6.0.8 Refresh Pack
    

Temporary fix
