Problem:

With Visual COBOL for Visual Studio you can tell what version is installed by clicking on Help-->About Microsoft Visual Studio from the IDE and then clicking on the Visual COBOL product in the list of installed products.

Version numbers will show as:

Visual COBOL 2010 R4 Version 1.3.00046.

So how does one tell what version of the COBOLRuntime 2010 product is installed on a production computer under Windows where Visual Studio 2010 in not installed?

Resolution:

You can tell what version of the COBOLRuntime 2010 product is installed by using Windows Control Panel-->Add/Remove Programs and clicking on Micro Focus COBOL 2010 Runtime in the list.

Then click on the link for: Click here for support information:

1.2.nnnnn = R3 release
1.3.nnnnn = R4 release
etc.
