You have posted this question regarding ACUCOBOL into the Visual COBOL forum which is a different product. I would suggest that you post it into the ACU/Extend forum in order to reach the correct group of engineers and customers.

Thanks

ACUCOBOL / AcuBench - AcuBench is an IDE tailored for creating COBOL User Interfaces and programs that are run by the ACUCOBOL-GT runtime. The UWP (Universal Windows Platform) is entirely different, it provides a way to deploy on a variety of Microsoft platforms /devices. What you may really be looking for is a way to migrate (actually transform) your existing apps into a Microsoft Visual Studio solution that can then be used within UWP. The ACUCOBOL-GT runtime is not one of the APIs supported within UWP. You really are looking at a total re-write of what you have to leverage UWP. I know of no tool that exists for transforming Acu code into UWP.

Another approach would be to take your existing application and create REST services with XCentricity BIS.

Then create a UWP application that consume these REST services.   This way you keep you business logic and avoid an entire re-write.

Below are some links that are worth having a look @

No thats tottaly not what i am looking for. I see that in Visual COBOL 3.0 at least i can use XAML and WPF, is that correct?
