We have been having issues with the activation server since last Friday. Can you please try the following and then get back to me and let me know if this fixes the issue. If it does not resolve it, I will need to connect remotely to manually activate the software.
It might be an IE browser setting issue. Please follow the procedure below:
1) Set IE as default browser.
2) In IE Internet Options > Advanced tab, click on Reset button to reset IE
Now, try to activate BES again and let me know if this works.
When activating the V8 software, you may get a “not responding” message, you must wait! It can take up to 8 minutes to activate the software. If you hit cancel or X out of the activation process, you will use an additional activation.
Here is how the Ticket Originated:
Software 8 installation went ok, but when I try to activate I get error message "Unable to connect to Authentication Server (Error 0x800C000B) Please check internet, firewall and date settings and try again later" and my help guide says I need to send this to wilcom because it is using my installations but not registering it.
