Installation Issue


Trying to install Visual COBOL for Visual Studio Personal Edition (download file vcvs2019_60.exe). 

Have Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2022 (64-bit) - Version 17.2.3 installed. 

Installation pop-up screen appears and disappears.  Find this in the Event Viewer log:

Any ideas on why the installation is failing?

Thanks, Steve

  • Thank you for the reply.  I will wait and see on the VC8.x version; not interested in stepping backwards in VS versions at this time.

  • Visual Studio 2022 is not compatible, you must deinstall it and install visual studio 2019 or the older version 2017.

    You must download the correct version, there are another version for vs2019 or vs2017.

    This is the big problem by visual studio and visual cobol, the best way is to have a integrated component not dependant from the installed vs!!!

    Or better a standalone application as Netexpress 5.x, why not Netexpress 7.x or 8.x

    For Visual Studio 2022 a newer version VC8.x is coming this summer! We see if this is coming then!!!
