Activation Unsuccessful Error

Very rarely, a user will receive a pop up saying that the activation has been unsuccessful, as seen in the image below. In most cases, this error is due to problems in Internet connectivity. Users have to resolve their connectivity problems themselves in order to successfully activate the application.


This message is also displayed when a secured environment is blocking proxy from firewall, or due to applied network policy. To resolve the problem in this case users have to provide their network department with the following URL and ask the department to enable it:
