Hello All,
I have a new laptop at last and it has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS. I've been doing quite well with all the new features but have hit a problem trying install cobol compiler. It won't load and I get the message: 'Unsupported 16-bit application. The programme or feature "\??\D:\Setup.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatability with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.'
Best wishes.

No. It's MFCOBOL VER 4.5

"NetCOBOL for Windows Version 10.1 runs on Windows® 7, Vista, XP, Server 2008 R2, Server 2008 and Server 2003 R2. Separate products support the generation of 32-bit and 64-bit code."

Same software?
