Before Installing first for important information. Also, see
Installing as an Upgrade, if you have an earlier version of
Visual COBOL installed on your machine.
To install this product:
vcvs2019_50.exe file (or
vcvs2019_50.exe) and follow the wizard instructions to install the prerequisite software and the product.
If you are installing onto a machine that has an existing
Micro Focus product that uses an older
Sentinel RMS License Manager, you might be prompted to remove it and install the
Micro Focus License Administration. By doing this you maintain the existing
Sentinel RMS license files while adding the
Micro Focus License Administration. If you are unsure about existing licenses on your computer or removing the
Sentinel RMS License Manager, consult your System Administrator. If you want to proceed, remove
Sentinel RMS License Manager by using
Program and Features (Windows Vista or later), and rerun the installation file.
If do not choose to install Rumba+ at this time, but decide you want it later, you must then uninstall
Visual COBOL, and then rerun the installer with the Rumba+ option checked. As an alternative, you can use a different emulator, but be
aware that instructions in this documentation often assume that you are using the embedded Rumba+ Desktop emulator.
Trial licenses cannot be used with remote desktop services. If you want to use your product in this way, please contact
Micro Focus SupportLine to obtain a relevant license.
We recommend that you install any updates for Visual Studio and the .NET Framework that are available at the
Microsoft Download site.
If you install JDK you might be prompted to install the latest update. The latest update is not required for use with
Visual COBOL but you can install it if you wish.
