Visual COBOL on a TFS Build Controller

Hi,

We are planning to use TFS to build & deploy our COBOL programs. As I understand it we need to install Visual COBOL on the TFS Build Controller (that will be a separate server) and have a valid Visual COBOL license for that server. But do we also need to first install Visual Studio on the TFS Build Controller or is it enough with the build system installed as part of the TFS Build Controller?

Regards,
Ingela

  • Visual Studio is a prerequisite for installing the Visual COBOL for Visual Studio product.

    If you have a full version of Visual Studio installed on your server then Visual COBOL will install into that.

    If you do not have Visual Studio already installed then Visual COBOL will install the Visual Studio Shell version automatically and will then install into that.

    I would highly recommend that you install a full version of Visual Studio as the shell version is somewhat limited.

    Thanks.
