This is a web site for Beginners and Students using IBM mainframes. You are looking for Cobol which runs on a PC. There are probably better sites to ask that question in.

However, if you do a bit of googling you should be able to sort yourself out. For free, don't expect a fancy "development environment". Any software you find will come with instructions on how to use it.
