Problems Downloading IBM i ACS (Access Client Solutions)?

The new replacement for the aging, creaky AS400 Client Access is the cunningly titled IBM i Access Client Solutions

Download this all new JAVA software is free, as long as you create an IBM Passport Account and once installed it lets you connect to the IBM I System and signon using a terminal emulator (5250), transfer data up and down and a bunch of other neat features…

Let’s go and download IBM i ACS together

If you decide that you do not want to install IBM i ACS, then I would recommend checking out either RDi and its integrated 5250 Emulator (which you need to pay for but its worth it) or use some other combination of free terminal emulator software.

  • Hi
    I was using IBM old version with my office 2013 windows 7 32 bit OS.
    Now we are upgrading to windows10 64 bit office 2016 and would like to use the PCOMM class and it fails saying active x component cant create object.

  • When I open 2 sessions, the second one opens on top of the first. I have 2 sessions open, but can only see one at a time. How do I get to the 2 (or more) sessions in multiple windows ?

  • Hi Nick, thanks for this discussion. I experience on WIndows 10 a lot delay when starting the acslaunch_win-64.exe.
    Is that normal. After the quick black popup, it takes about 5-10 seconds before the Java applets are scanned and then another 10 seconds before the GUI starts. Is that fast according to you ?

  • Looked around for this and finally found it here. Thanks! I had to download the latest Java version before it would work, but all is well now.
