missing authorization code for free verson of v/cobol personal edition

I downloaded the free version of personal visual cobol from CNET.  When I attempt to open an example project (or any other) the Visual Studio tells me I need an authorization code.  This was a download directly from CNET.

I didn't get an authorization code on a package and I didn't get one in an email as I didn't have to
 provide an email address to CNET.

I called support and they told me to come here.  When I try to use online support I need an authorization code to get to them.
 This is a conundrum of a sort.

Can anybody tell me how to  obtain an authorization code?  Also, is this a temporary authorization or is it permanent for the personal edition?

    The most current relaese of Visual COBOL Personal Edition does not require an authorization code.

    Perhaps you have downloaded an older version from C/NET?

    Please uninstall the version that you have and download the Visual COBOL PE from the microfocus web site directly here.

    Thanks.
