To buy a license for Visual COBOL, contact your sales representative or Micro Focus Customer Care.
For instructions on using the Micro Focus License Administration Tool, see Licensing in the Visual COBOL help.
When you have bought your license you are given a license file or an authorization code with which to activate the product.
If you have not installed a license for Visual COBOL, starting the IDE for the first time after you install the product opens the Micro Focus Visual COBOL Product Licensing dialog box. If you cancel this dialog box, you can invoke it again from Help > Micro Focus > Product Licensing.
