Problem with different version of Visual Age Compiler for C++ in AIX

Problem with different version of Visual Age Compiler for C++ in AIX

Post by Ravi Nandibhat » Thu, 27 Jun 2002 15:10:24


I have two IBM-AIX machines with OS 4.3.3 on both the machines, and
installed Visual Age Compiler. One is having and other is
having of Visual Age Compiler.

The below sample program is compiled with VAC ( Visual Age Compiler) and I tried to run on the other machine in which VAC
is installed. Then I got the error 'Illegal instruction' ( SIGNAL 4).

Please let me know where the problem is and how can I resolve it.

My requirement is: I want to compile with VAC and I want to
run the same on a machine in which VAC is installed.


#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main(int argc, char* argv[])
    cout << "Here is the problem" << endl;
  return 0;


Thanks in advance,

1. Problems installing Visual Age C++ 5.0 on AIX 5.2.0

I've made numerous searches on comp.unix.aix for an answer to the
problems I'm having.  Searching through IBM's support website has been
of no help as well.

I am having a heck of a time trying to get Visual Age C++ Version 5.0
installed on a fresh AIX 5L (5.2.0) system.  I say a "fresh" AIX 5.2
system in that this machine did not have any previous version of AIX
installed on it.

I cannot get Visual Age C++ v5.0 completely installed.  The errors on
install indicated that the software will not install because numerous
prerequisites (namely "bos.rte v=4, r<3") are missing.  I thought that
downloading and installing a large PTF (from Nov 2002) to update
Visual Age to 5.0.2 would address this issue but it hasn't.

Can this even be done?  Or do I have to upgrade to Visual Age C++ 6.0
to install on AIX 5.2?

Any help would be appreciated!
