My setup is Windows 10 and the 365 day trial version of Visual Studio and Visual Cobol.
The error dialog I mentioned is from Visual Studio and reads thus:
Unable to determine the status of the product license.
Error details: Unable to determine the status of the product license.
Error : Cannot talk to the license server on host “127.0.0.1”, Server may not be running.
I never got a window or dialog for Micro Focus License Manager, so there was no Summary tab info to be had.
In an effort to remove a solution from Visual Studio yesterday, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Then, seeing no COBOL templates or information, I ran the vcvs2019_60 installer again and chose “Repair installation.” That brought back the Micro Focus COBOL integration to Visual Studio, but I now get the Cannot talk to the license server on host “127.0.0.1”, Server may not be running. error from Visual Studio so I cannot proceed with my COBOL tutorial.
Maybe I should uninstall/reinstall vcvs2019_60, but I will await your reply.
