Licensing Visual Cobol Personal Edition under Linux?

Trying out the Personal Edition looking to find the right COBOL to do a project with, but for the life of me, I cannot get the Linux version with eclipse to license. Anyone else succeeded with this and willing to share a tip or two to a very frustrated person? 

Also, the project involves a lot of CGI programs running on a single Linux box. I am open to the best and lowest cost options to do this. There are a half dozen maintenance programs that run either in a batch mode or as a green screen app. It doesn't matter if they run green screen or GUI to me, we can easily do either. It is mostly the extended ACCEPT we are looking for. (I said CGI, but these are mostly Ajax powered web programs, and actually they transmit XML with each transaction.) 

I have included the only information I can find about licensing it below, and that is not the 16 character license code the license manager is looking for. :) 

Thanks, 

-Paul

    You can try to enter the following authorization code into License Manager:

    22A491594F2519D2

    If this does not solve the problem, development would like you to provide us with the .log file for the IDE.

    It is located in the WorkspaceDir\.metadata\ directory and the name is “.log”.

    The workspace directory is the one which you choose when you start Eclipse.

    The “.metadata” directory is usually hidden.

    So in this directory there can be files like:

                   WorkspaceDir\.metadata\.log

                   WorkspaceDir\.metadata\.bak_0

                   WorkspaceDir\.metadata\.bak_1

                   …

    If we can have the “.log” and all “.bak_x” files we will be able to see what exceptions are there and then hopefully find the cause of the problem that you are experiencing.

    Thanks.
