After developing a native code application using Visual COBOL for Visual Studio R3 it was deployed to a computer where COBOLRuntime2010 product was installed. A valid license for COBOLRuntime2010 had been installed and shows correctly under MF License Manager. When running the application on this system an error 245 occurs with the following message: No Valid Product Licenses
Licensing for the COBOLRuntime2010 product was changed between R2 and R3 of Visual COBOL for Visual Studio. If you had installed a license that was generated for R2 initially then it will fail with this error message. Contact Micro Focus Support and have them generate a new license using product type COBOLRuntime2010 Production. This will generate the appropriate key for COBOLRuntime2010-Deploy in the license database file.
