    Find a COBOL compiler and compile it.

    I have a compiler but i always have to type "runcobol [programname]" to get it started while i just want to start it by typing the programname like other .exe 's

    That looks more like an interpreter than a compiler. The program runcobol interprets your Cobol code.

    There are free Cobol compilers around on the Net, for example here:
