Visual Cobol PE

Jump to solution

I installed at first the trial vcvs-2015.exe Problems with compile errors. Got a Visual Cobol PE. After uninstall from the earlier version, i try to install the Personal Editon. Get the install error: 0x81f40001 (uninstall earlier version, before install) But my PC doesn't have an earlier version anymore. See my attachment for more information.

Please, who can help me out of these troubles?

You should never uninstall a product by cleaning out the registry. A simple uninstall from Control Panel should be enough. The registry may be in an inconsistent state now.

If you look in Control Panel Programs and Features do you see any Micro Focus products installed?

The license manager is a separate product from Visual COBOL and the licenses are saved into a license file. In order to get rid of the previous license all you really needed to do was delete the license file on disk.

The two files are:

C:\Program Data\Micro Focus\lservrc.stn

C:\Program Data\Micro Focus\lservrc.net
