VISUAL COBOL IN HYPER-V VM

We are developing our migration from NET EXPRESS to VISUAL COBOL under Visual Studio 2013 using VMs developed with Hyper-V. We are having difficulties communicating with the network printers that are defined to our Win 7 machines. Do you have any suggestions how we can communicate across the VM into the actual network attachments or do we need to redefine the printers within the VMs?

Thus far our transition of the Dialog System screens into this environment are working well. Our intention is to go to Web Forms instead of the Dialog screens in the course of this migration.

Thank you!

RE: VISUAL COBOL IN HYPER-V VM

Hi Carol,

I don't think it matters if your VMs are with or without Hyper-V.

Can you please make sure that you can print with Notepad from the VMs.

How exactly are you printing from your application? If it is defined as SELECT ... ASSIGN TO PRINTER, then you will need to use the printer redirection method. You can find a demo PrntTune.zip at supportline.microfocus.com/.../nesamp.aspx

Regards,

We were told that Hyper-V is tougher to set up USB and networked peripherals including printers and wondered if there is something Micro Focus has to overcome this...will try the demo...thanks
