Installing on Windows

  • This version of the product is a full install.
  • If you have an earlier version of Visual COBOL installed on your machine, check Installing as an Upgrade before you start the installation.

These are the steps to install Visual COBOL:

  1. Run the vce_60.exe file and follow the wizard instructions to complete the installation.

    By default, this installs Visual COBOL in the %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL folder and installs a full version of Eclipse 4.8 64-bit, with the Micro Focus plugins already installed, in the C:\Users\Public\Micro Focus\Product Name\eclipse directory.

    The setup file installs any missing prerequisite software as listed in the topic Software Requirements.

Note: See Advanced Installation Tasks for information about non-default installation tasks.
