Error after Visual Studio Community 2019 updated to version 16.3

Jump to solution

Has anyone experienced this error and know how to correct the problem?  It was working fine yesterday before the update occured.  I uninstalled/reinstalled Visual COBOL Personal Edition to no avail.

The "MicroFocus.Cobol.BuildTasks.Cobol" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\MSBuild\Micro Focus\Visual COBOL\v1.0\MicroFocus.COBOL.BuildTasks.dll. Method 'get_SourceFileExtension' in type 'MicroFocus.COBOL.BuildTasks.CreateCobolManifestResourceName' from assembly 'MicroFocus.COBOL.BuildTasks, Version=16.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=0412c5e0b2aaa8f0' does not have an implementation. Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask.

This is a known problem that Visual Studio 2019 version 16.3 breaks the current Visual COBOL 5.0 product. We have created a fix for this in the Visual COBOL Patch Update 2 which will be GA in a couple days.

In the meantime I have uploaded the PU2 installer to our ftp site here:

Please download this and install it over the 5.0 GA version and it will fix the problem.

Thanks.
