License Installation failed

I am trying to install Visual COBOL for Visual Studio 2012 on a Windows 8.1 Pro laptop. Everything seemed ok until I try installing my license file. I run the License Manager, browse to the file and click Install and it spins for a long time and then I get an error message:

"Error installing licenses: Error[5]: Cannot talk to the license server on host "127.0.0.1". Server may not be running."

What can I do to fix this?

RE: License Installation failed

Hello Randy,

Can you please reboot the machine and make sure that the following services are running:

+ Micro Focus Directory Service daemon (32 bit)

+ Sentinel RMS Development Kit License Manager (32 bit)

Regards,

RE: License Installation failed

I have the Micro Focus Directory Server running. Is that the same as Directory Service daemon?

I also have the Sentinel RMS License Manager (Development Kit isn't in the name) that was there but not running even though it is set to 'Automatic'. I started that service and tried running the License Manager again.

No joy. I start the program and a very long time later I get the error message;

"Unable to initialize: Error[5]: Cannot talk to the license server on host "127.0.0.1". Server may not be running."

I really need to get Visual COBOL running on this laptop.

Best regards,

Randy

Often, the Windows Service "Micro Focus CES daemon" ( as it shows under Windows Services) or mfcesd.exe does not start up automatically after an install. Please check to see if this service is started it is different from the Micro Focus Directory Service.

RE: License Installation failed

Yes, the CES daemon is running as is the Directory Server. It doesn't say "Directory Service", it says "Server".
