Problem:

How can Visual COBOL updates (wrappacks) and hotfixes be installed silently?

Resolution:

Visual COBOL Updates and Hotfixes are provided as standard Microsoft patch files (.msp) and so they can be installed using the msiexec command and its available switches.

To silently install hotfix3 for example you can use:

msiexec /p c:\yourfolder\visualcobolvisualstudio21_hotfix03.msp /qn
