Hello @wgherm,

 

My apologies for the delay in responding, and welcome to the Micro Focus Community Site.

 

Visual COBOL 6.0 provides support for Ubuntu 18.04 on Intel x64. If you would, please send me an email to blair.mcdonald@microfocus.com with your contact information, and I'll pass it along to someone who may be able to get you a Product Evaluation for that platform.

Blair, do you not have a working VC6.0 for Suse or OES2018?
OES2018 is released from Micro Focus!
