Unknown Error on Software Activation

Unknown error is caused by blocked access to the computer operating system or network connection.

This may be due to a computer policy on the network that blocks ability for our Licensing service to properly function, or a Internet connection that is blocked or redirected 

  • On the first run of the software when a Trial License activation is attempted
  • On activation or deactivation of the software license.

This can also occur when your system has an inactive Netbios, which our licensing requires to generate an ID for the machine activated.
