After I downloaded Visual COBOL Personal Edittion, I do have some problems with activating the free product.
After I launch Visual COBOL in Visual Studios I must activate it by entering my e-mail address. Everytime I get an error saying:
"Unable to acquire product license". How do I fix this?
Have you tried using the manual option to activate your free product? if os, and it still fails, can you try re-installing the software.
I just did what you wrote and i worked - sort of... I got an email from MF and pasted it into the IDE.
A new windows displayed "Your Visual COBOL trial has expired" and it's asking me to send an email in order to purchase a license. I thought Visual COBOL PE was free of charge? I had a 30 day trial in december 2014 and I used the same e-mail.
I'm assuming that the version you had back in December was Visual COBOL for Visual Studio 2013. Did you remove that version before installing PE?
PS You misspelt edition.
