Installation Issues

I'm attempting to install Visual Cobol vcvs2012_231 on Win2012R2 server.

It doesn't ask for any licecnse keys. The installation completed OK. Rebooted server.

How or where do I check how the license for VC is actually entered? I can't find any documentation on that. The online documentation says to use the sh and mflmman commands, but those don't exist in Windows. (Yes I know they are Unix/AIX commands but the online WINDOWS documentation for VC says to use the commands.)

Can anyone provide some insight where and how the licenses are entered and administered? It doesnt appear in the Entereprise Server Administration tool. Or maybe I'm missing something?

Thank you for helping.

RE: Installation Issues

And to be clear, the MicroFocus CES Daemon and the Micro Focuse Directory Server windows services are running.

RE: Installation Issues

After installing Visual COBOL if you start Visual Studio and try to open or create a COBOL project it should automatically prompt you to install a license.

Alternatively, from the Start Menu navigate to All Programs-->Micro Focus License Manager and then run the License Administration tool. This is where you enter your licenses.

The docs can be found here:
