When you subscribe to a non-cloud version of Elastic COBOL or Elastic Transaction Platform (ETP), you will receive an email that contains a license file called 'elasticcobol.properties'.
To successfully activate your downloaded product, you must:
- Place this file in the home directory of the account you are using on your operating system.
- Ensure you have a working internet connection.
- Either load the Elastic COBOL IDE via the 'eclipse' application (or via a shortcut to this application), or execute your application.
If the license check is successful then your product (or application) will execute as expected.
