Visual COBOL 2015 License

I am taking a COBOL programming course and they require I use the 2015 version. Is there a way I can get the 365-day license for multiple machines as I use both my home system and my work system to do homework or do I have to do multiple 30-day keys?

  • The Visual COBOL Personal Edition is only available for Visual Studio 2017. The installer for Visual Studio 2015 is not available when downloading the Personal Edition. The PE version is the academic version with a 365 day license.


    The Visual COBOL Trial version is a 30-day evaluation of the product and this does support Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Studio 2017. You are only provided with a single license per download. If you have a different email address then you can download a second copy and you will get a different license key but it is probably best to contact your Account Manager and ask them if they can handle your request.


    Thanks.
