The site has been pirated. It now sells real estate. So cygwin is the only current choice.

Have you looked at the VC version of OC [1].

In any case, the MinGW site is hosted on SF [2], so only the DSN ( is not working. You can still download the files you require.

Some hints on building OC:

You can download VB-ISAM (version 2), and PDCurses (version 2.4), MinGW binaries at the TC download area [3]. The GMP libraries can be found here [4].

To configure and build OC on MinGW you will need to install MSYS.

Anyway, hope this helps.

1) OpenCOBOL 1.1 binaries - using VC

2) MinGW on SF

3) TC on SF

4) GMP for Windows Platform
