Dear, adding the command "allow_strpccmd = 1" to the startup-script solved the problem.

Many thanks!

Sounds like you do not have +allow_strpccmd in your configuration?

You need to do this in order for commands to be allowed.

I'm using the windows version on MS-Windows 8.1 with the tn5250 terminal to our AS400.

Everything works perfect except when I want to let AS400 generate a report and let push it to my PC.

I receive the following message:

Required PC program (PCO.EXE) is not activated No communication is

possible with the PC Press ENTER to continue

Does anyone know a solution for this?

Thanks in advance
