Visual COBOL PE + Visual Studio Community Edition

Jump to solution

I asked this question a couple of months ago and was told that the PE edition would be available for VS 2017 Community Edition 'real soon now'. Unless I have missed a forum entry I haven't seen any further news. When will this combination be avaolable?

Mike: thanks. I installed VCOBOL PE with the Community Edition. Exploring the various options I click on 'Microfocus Dailog System' and I get an error - 'There are no valid product licenses'. Where do I find the licence file so that I can install it?

I think there should be something under the Help > Micro Focus Product Help.

It's been a while since I had to install the Personal Edition, so my memory of the process isn't completely clear.

I tried Product Licensing > I want to activate the free product > Automatic and entered my email address. It replied 'Activation Failed ... didn't recognise email address'. This is strange since I entered my email address when requesting the download of PE and to which I received the download instructions. So still unlicensed.

Please send me an email to chris.glazier@microfocus.com and I will send to you a license key for the Visual Studio PE product.

Thanks.
