I have Visual Studio license, but got message saying "evaluation period has ended"

Jump to solution

About a month ago I got a full upgrade of my Visual Studio and Visual COBOL, with help from Mark Buchanan.  Today Visual Studio told me my license was only for a 30-day evaluation period.  See screen shot.  What do I do now?

Hi,

Since you are using the Community edition of Visual Studio, you need to sign in with a Microsoft account (which is free to sign up for if you don't already have one).

See docs.microsoft.com/.../signing-in-to-visual-studio

Regards,

Experience the same problem. Being a total beginner Chris Glazier went out of his way to bail me out and it wasn't easy. Chris did his thing with the licence agreement giving me a new agreement with 365 days. But I had to reinstall the micro focus and the studio and the activity had it's problems. I documented all I did and your welcome. Send me an email to JOHNWALLA@AOL.COM and I'll provide that document. I'd be embarrassed to publish that here and exposed all the problems I created.

Hi John,

Your problem had to do with the licensing of the Visual COBOL PE product. The message that is being referenced in this thread is not about the licensing of the Visual COBOL PE product. The message is about Visual Studio trial license expiring which is different so I don't believe that your notes are relevant to this issue.

Thanks
