Product Licensing Problem

Hi, all:

I am new in this community but need an urgent help from you.

In May this year I downloaded COBOL Personal Edition for one year use until May 2016. It worked fine until September. But now I found the "product licencing" shows I have only 29 days left for trial. Again, I was told it should be good until May 2001, as shown in MicroFocus website when downloading this Personal Edition. 

I have downloaded this version over the same process second time today and installed it with another email address for registration. But the 30 days trial problem remains.

I now believe this was what happened: two days ago I accidentally clicked the button on Product Licencing page, trying to refresh licence. Due to this click, the system assumed (1) I clicked the button because my one year time is over and (2) I want to continue to use the software. Based on this assumption, the system started this 30 day trial counting down. 

I wish you guys could look at my case and give some tips for what to do.

Thanks.

RE: Product Licensing Problem

Close down the Visual COBOL product.

Delete the following files.

Lservrc.stn

Lservrc.net

They should be found in:

C:\ProgramData\Micro Focus   -  on Windows 7 and up

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

Reboot your computer.

Start Visual COBOL and try the free licensing process again.

Thanks.
