Visual Studio edition

Jump to solution

When I go to the link sent to me by MF to download the free/personal Visual COBOL, I am presented with the same download file for both Visual Studio and Eclipse: "Visual COBOL for Eclipse Personal Edition". Sure enough, when I install what I download under the "Visual Studio users" tab I get an Eclipse version install. Looks to me that the webpage is incorrect, and erroneously presenting the Eclipse download instead of a Visual Studio download?

Clicking on the tabs that say Visual Studio Users or Eclipse Users on the actual download page only affect the readme note that is displayed and they do not affect the product download links at all.

You select the actual product to download (Visual Studio or Eclipse) on the original registration page for the Personal Edition product.

If you would like to download the Visual Studio version then select that product in the drop down list.

Thanks.

I just registered for the personal edition again, making sure that I selected Visual Studio. Again I got a link to a page that just offers Eclipse. I am pretty sure that you folks have a problem.

Never mind - I clicked on the first email by mistake.
