The setup file will check your machine for whether the prerequisite software is installed and will install any missing prerequisites and the product components.
Some earlier versions of Eclipse are also supported. See Installing Visual COBOL into other instances of Eclipse in the Advanced Installation Tasks.
Java 11 (64-bit) is required to run the Eclipse IDE. The minimum recommended version is AdoptOpenJDK's OpenJDK 8 (u202) with Hotspot, which the Windows product installs automatically. You can download AdoptOpenJDK's OpenJDK 8 with Hotspot from AdoptOpenJDK's Web site and unpack the archive anywhere on your machine.
Microsoft Windows SDK and Microsoft Build Tools: Various actions and operations within your COBOL development environment depend on certain files that Microsoft distributes in the following packages: the Windows SDK package and the Microsoft Build Tools package. See Microsoft Package Dependencies for a full list of actions and operations that require one or both of these packages.
By default, the product installation installs the latest versions of the Microsoft Windows 10 SDK, and the Microsoft Build Tools for Visual Studio 2017, to their default locations.
If you need to use any other version of these packages, or use them installed to a non-default location, use the cblms command line utility post-installation to manage this; see Managing the Microsoft Build Tools and Windows SDK Packages for more information.
See Java Support Restrictions in the product help for any considerations when using Eclipse and Java.
