Installation VC90 no correct.

hello,
I have had to install VC 9.0 2022 on a new PC, due to the failure of the previous PC, after installing VS2020 professional 17.1o and
Windows SDK
location = D:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus Visual COBOL\Microsoft\SDK\10
version = 10.0.19041.0

Microsoft Build Tools
location = D:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus Visual COBOL Microsoft
version = 14.34.31933.

I load VS2022, and no VC options appear in the IDE.
I have tried to repair the VC installation, but it gives error 0x8007000a.

How should I proceed to have a correct installation?


Regards

  • Follow the instructions to run the VSIXInstaller utility which should install the extensions into Visual Studio.

    Installing Visual COBOL into Visual Studio (microfocus.com)

    Microsoft made a change to Visual Studio 2022 in V17.10 that broke the Visual COBOL installation.

    Make sure that you have the latest PU 8.0 installed for Visual COBOL which should solve this problem.

  • What are the contents of the folder D:\Program Files (x86)\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL\vsix\VS17.0?

    Open up a Visual COBOL command prompt and execute the following command:

    cblms -Q

    What is displayed?

  • Everything looks correct but I really don't understand that error message. Did you download and install the Visual Studio Build Tools separately from the Visual COBOL install?

    Can you uninstall the Visual COBOL product from Control Panel or do you get an error when you try to do that?

    If you can uninstall Visual COBOL try that and then do a Repair of Visual Studio and then reinstall Visual COBOL.

  • Do you have other versions of Visual Studio installed on your computer? If yes, then you should remove them.

    Did you download and install the Visual Studio Build Tools separately from the Visual COBOL install?
    Can you uninstall the Visual COBOL product from Control Panel or do you get an error when you try to do that?

    At this point, if you can uninstall Visual COBOL try that and then also uninstall Visual Studio 2022 and the Visual Studio Build Tools if you installed them separately.

    Then reboot the computer, install Visual Studio 2022 again and then install Visual COBOL 9.0 and PU 8.

    Open Visual Studio and check for COBOL extensions. If they are not there then close Visual Studio and run the mfvsixinstall program..

  • Thank you.

    Problem solved, after following your instructions and having to run the MFVSIXINSTALL instruction afterwards.

    Need you see log file?

    But when I try to access the MF License Manager, to check that the licenses are correct, I do not access.

    At the second time. OK

    Regards

  • That is good news that it finally installed correctly!

    I am confused about your statement about the licensing "At the second time OK"
    Does this mean when you started it the second time it stated up successfully or are you still experiencing the problem?

    I should have had you uninstall the License Manager at the same time you uninstalled the Visual COBOL product as that is not automatically done but that shouldn't cause the issue.

    You might try restarting the Micro Focus CES Daemon and Sentinel RMS License Manager services from the Windows Services screen if you are still having the problem?

  • mean when you started it the second time it stated up successfully.

    I did not uninstall the license manager to avoid the risk of losing the license.

    As a conclusion of the solution of the problem, it is that for Visual Cobol 9.0 2022, to work correctly, it depends totally on a correct and clean installation of Visual Studio 2022 previous.
