Create a Native Enterprise Developer Project

The first task is to create a project. Visual Studio uses the concept of a 'solution' to hold one or more related projects. Unless you specify an existing solution when creating a project, a new one is created for you.

  1. In Visual Studio, create a new project by clicking File > New > Project.

    The New Project dialog box appears.

  2. Expand Installed > COBOL.
  3. Select Native.
  4. From the list of project types, select Micro Focus INT/GNT.

    Alternatively, select Console Application to create a native command line application, or select Link Library to create a library usable by other applications.

  5. In the Name field, specify a name for the project.
  6. In the Location field, specify a location for the project.
  7. Click OK.

    The project is created within a solution of the same name, and then opened, ready to edit. The next task is to edit the project properties.
