Installing as an Upgrade

This release works concurrently with the previous version of Visual COBOL Development Hub, so you do not need to uninstall it.

Install the latest version in a different location and set the environment to point to it. To do this, run the Visual COBOL Development Hub installer with the –installlocation option:

  1. Execute the following command:
    ./InstallFile -installlocation="/opt/microfocus/VisualCOBOL"
    Note: You can use variables when specifying an absolute path for –installlocation. For example, the following examples are equivalent:
  2. Execute cobsetenv to set the environment and point to the new install location:
    . <product-install-dir>/bin/cobsetenv
    Note: cobsetenv is only compatible with POSIX-like shells, such as bash, ksh, or XPG4 sh. It is not compatible with C-shell or pre-XPG4 Bourne shell.
