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.

RE: Cannot Recognize COBOL Projects in Visual Studio

Please run the License Administration tool from the Micro Focus License Manager group on the Start menu. Can you tell me what license has been installed for the product?

If you select Help-->About Microsoft Visual Studio from the IDE menu does Micro Focus Visual COBOL appear in the list?

RE: Cannot Recognize COBOL Projects in Visual Studio

Hi Chris, I ran the MicroFocus License Administration tool and no licenses are listed.
When checking installed products through Help-->About Microsoft Visual Studio, Visual Cobol does not appear. I will browse the MicroFocus folder for the license files to see if I can install them.

If it is any help, my serial number for support is 

600000731767

If you are having problems with the product licensing, please send an email directly to supportline@microfocus.com and tell them what the serial number is and they will provide you with an appropriate license.

Our IT department is in the process of trying to fix this problem.

Thanks.
