Problem:

How do you set environment variables in Visual COBOL?

Resolution:

In your Visual COBOL Project right click on on the loaded project in the solution explorer > add new item > Add a new Application Configuration File > Once added to the project right click on the App.config file and choose edit from the menu in the solution explorer window > Now you will see an Environment tab which allows you to add environment variables as needed > Once you have added the environment variables click ok.
