Enabling Windows XP support. How to specify cbllink -Y option in Visual COBOL project properties?


Problem :

How to enable Windows XP support for COBOL application.

Via a Visual COBOL command prompt, it is possible to use the cbllink –Y option to enable Windows XP / 2003 support, but how is this done via a Visual COBOL Project > Properties > COBOL Link?

There appears to be no option to specify this, or it is not clear where to set this.


Resolution :

In a Visual COBOL Project > Properties > COBOL Link shows all the cbllink options are included expect for the –Y option. 
The Additional Directives Textbox can be used to specify –Y.
