Cannot Recognize COBOL Projects in Visual Studio

I have downloaded Visual Cobol for Visual studio 2017, and all the files have been properly installed. However, when creating a new project in visual studio 2017, no COBOL options are available. When trying to open COBOL samples included in the Visual COBOL downloads, Visual studio states it is not compatible. The same occurs when trying to open any COBOL Project. 

To clarify, the Visual Cobol files downloaded properly. Visual studio cannot link with these files.
