Blank Activation Screen ...Endows XP
Thanks for the replies .... And the simplest way to solve the blank screen issue is do what I did. Reformat the hard disk, put on the security and then the software and it worked first time...
One thing i noticed though was my default browser was Chrome and for some reason it wouldn't "allow" the activation screen to connect to the net ... and yet with Internet Explorer it sailed through
something worth thinking about
Solution for me:
Adding the htmal strings to multiple files (I just kept adding until it worked) and registering online (through a browser and not the product)
Software works fine!
Thanks for the html tips!
A quick and easy way to fix this not with just AutoCad but if you have the same problem with other programs, like bitdefender and your windows gadgets, press & hold start button on key board and press 'R' , type in 'regedit' go to 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, Internet Settings, Zones' you will see under Zones are six files each named 'L' '0' '1' '2' '3' '4', delete the file named 'L', that is the activex problem, you can uninstall it from your PC but these are "parasite" files that stay in the system. Problem solved quick and easy.
O.k this might sound stupid but I did all the steps you previously said and I tried to edit the html document and it had an access denied window open when I tried to save it.
Right-click the HTML and make sure you have the permission to edit it. If you are admin, allow the user full control.
And... maybe not have the blank activation screen open when you edit it? That could also help.
