Virtual COBOL Personal Edition
I am a former COBOL programmer and Systems Analyst looking to get back into coding. I want to sharpen my skills so I have signed up for the Personal Edition. I need to know what version I should load...I am operating on Windows Vista, Service Pack 2, 64 bit and IE9.The choices are 2010 and 2012.
I also need to know what web training is availabe for the Personal Edition. I don't need COBOL training but rather training on how to navigate Visual Cobol.
I'm newbie, so I may not have the right answer.
I believe it's Visual Cobol PE that you're considering using. It has 2 forms, the first based on Eclipse, the second base on Visual Studio.
Visual COBOL for Eclipse is available for the following three platforms:Windows, SUSE and Redhat.
Visual COBOL for Visual Studio is for Windows only.

To add to [mention:d978f053b793414ba2eac972cd6763c9:e9ed411860ed4f2ba0265705b8793d05]'s reply, you may want to consider using Visual COBOL for Visual Studio 2012 instead of the one for Visual Studio 2010. Microsoft just dropped the support on Visual Studio 2010.
As for the web training, I recommend the following YouTube playlists that were created by our experts:
