Hi Mgarner, couple suggestions for you to refer to:
This shows how to access ACU and RM files from Visual COBOL:
And for WinForm tutorials, we have several UI samples to choose from including this getting started guide:
When I try to open the extend vision file i get a 9/nnn file status error (nnn=198) is that an issue with my vision file or am I missing something in the set up?
Have you set the EXTFH environment variable to point to a extfh configuration file? If so what is the contents of the configuration file?
No. The application will run fine on a 64 bit machine. The reason that it needs to be compiled for x86, as I understand it, is that the "vision file handling libraries" are 32 bit.
