See Additional Software Requirements for details about prerequisite software for using Visual COBOL with Microsoft Azure and for the exact supported version of the Microsoft Azure SDK.
If any future versions of the Microsoft Azure SDK are made available before the next major release of Visual COBOL, Micro Focus will deliver support for these only upon customers' requests.
The Microsoft Azure SDK supported in this release of Visual COBOL might not support features available in previous versions of the SDK. This means COBOL Azure projects created with earlier versions of Visual COBOL must be upgraded to the supported version of the SDK.
The following step outline how to upgrade existing COBOL Azure projects to this version of Visual COBOL:
You receive a notification that the projects are associated with an earlier version of Microsoft Azure.
This converts your projects to the latest project format and loads them in Solution Explorer.
Alternatively, instead of updating the project references, you can remove the existing Web and Worker roles from your solution and create new ones using the latest Microsoft Azure SDK.
For more information about the changes in the Microsoft Azure SDK since previous versions and for features that are no longer supported, check Microsoft's documentation on Azure.
