Re: Blank Activation Screen

This is how I fixed it.

 

 

Rigth click the white box.... select properties...... copy the web address it is trying to reach.   Open a browser window and paste it in. It should work just like a normal web address at that point and should not give you any issues.  I used google chrome and still worked fine.

 

I hope this helps any still with this problem.

That's probably because your chrome activex settings are different than your IE ones. The activation screen is normally opening the html in the pc's default browser, which is IE.

My only solution to the problem was to format my hard drive and reinstall windows. The Autodesk tech support kept referring me to the forum and Knowledge database which i had already gone thru thoroughly.

exactly what i've been saying all along  ...  re format re install windows  and install Autocad  .....

One of the problems i found is that there seems to be a conflict between Autocad and Google Chrome internet browser ...

The directory for the white box (the activation screen) is

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\AdLM\R1\en-US\Webdepot

...where the registry HTMLs are stored. These are the pages that the blank screen shows on.

Open the RTBeginReg.html in a text editor like notepad. Add the following line of code below the <html> line.

<!-- saved from url=(0016)http://localhost -->

This marks the page as SAFE. Save and you should be able to enter your code and stuff.

Tried this and managed to get a screen up................!

But got a ("An error has occured in the script on this page.") message after I put in my activation code. 

So frustrating, :smileymad:

Driving me nuts.

If that worked one one screen, great! Try putting the tag into the other htmls, specifically the one that comes after the code submission.

All known workarounds against this issue is listed in TS1053941, and I can only add that in some instances granting Full Control access permission to Everyone Group on C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\AdLM\R4\en-US\Webdepot folder, resolved the issue.
