License Don´t Work

Jump to solution

Hi.

I downloaded Visual Cobol for Visual Studio 2010, but my trial license of 365 days don´t work, my university passed the link of the product.

When I put my activation key, the program don´t accept. I don´t know what happened, but I need this program.

What can I do to fix that?

Thanks

This problem has now been solved.

It appears that there is a problem with the license manager recognizing the Visual COBOL PE license that is provided with the product download, if a previous version of a trial product has already been installed on the same computer.

To fix this you can try the following:

1.  From Administrative Tools-->Services find the serice Sentinel RMS License Manager in the list and click on Stop to stop the service.

2.  Delete the file named Lservrc.stn from the following folder:

C:\ProgramData\Micro Focus   -  on Windows 7/Windows Server 2008

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Micro Focus - on XP

Then click on Start for the Sentinel RMS License Manager service to start the service again.

It should now pick up the new license for Visual COBOL Personal Edition.

Can you please e-mail to me the link that you used to download the product and the activation key that you used so that I can investigate?

Do not post here but instead e-mail to me at chris.glazier@microfocus.com

Thanks.
