Unable to apply HotFix 7 or higher on COBOL Server 2.2 Update 2

Problem:

The installation of HotFix 7 or higher fails with the following error message:

Fix setup issue(s) and retry. For more information see the log file.

0x81f40001 - Micro Focus COBOL Server 2013 has been detected but needs to be upgraded to the R2 version. R2 can be downloaded from the SupportLine site. Please contact Micro Focus Customer Care if you have any queries.

Resolution:

COBOL Server R2 allows applications created with Visual COBOL for Visual Studio 2010/2012/2013 to also be deployed on Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. The R2 installers replace the original installers of COBOL Server and include any fixes delivered with HotFixes 1 to 6 of the COBOL Server 2.2 Update 2 release.

This R2 installer is available for download from the Product Updates page at the MF SupportLine site.

Once the R2 is installed, then you will be able to install HotFix 7 or higher.


Note: Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 support is enabled in conjunction with HotFix 6 or greater for Visual COBOL for Visual Studio, which can be obtained by contacting SupportLine. Please see the Deployment to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 section within the Release Notes for more information.
