Why won't VC personal edition install?

Hi -

I'm trying to install Visual COBOL Personal Edition on OpenSUSE Tumbleweed (version id =  20180829). I've added the dependencies the installer asked for (Ed, glibc-locale-32bit and JDK 8), but when I run the installer I get:


install.sh - ExtractFiles - 001 - Failed to extract product
PaX tool returned non-zero return code. RC:- 255

The installer has created the following directories below /opt/microfocus, but both the VisualCOBOL directories are empty: 

logs
VisualCOBOL
VisualCOBOL.BKP-2018-0-03.14:54:01

Any suggestions? 

Thanks.

Unfortunetly, you will not be able install the SLES product on OpenSUSE due to differences between SLES/OpenSUSE.

The supported platform for VC is SLES rather then OpenSUSE.
