Unable to activate license


Recommended Posts

Good evening,

For the last two days I tried to activate my (online) bought license for ESET Smart Security Premium 1 Device 1
Year PC ESET Key GLOBAL, but every time I get a ECP 20003 error and message licensingserver couldn't been reached.

I'm a bit sad now as I think I tried every trick in my book to let it succeed...

So as a last resort I try this forum for tips and tricks...

Hardware: HP laptop with Windows 10 Home edition
No other antivirus software
Tried with WiFi and network cable on a VDSL-modem/router.

Logfile collector files available ..

Please help....

Sweet greetings from Koos

1, Check if the hosts file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts contains only default entries for localhost.

2, Try setting DNS servers to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and reboot the machine.

Hi @Marcos,

Hosts file contains:

127.0.0.1 activate.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 practivate.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 lmlicenses.wip4.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 lm.licenses.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 na1r.services.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 hlrcv.stage.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 edf.eset.com

Which has to go or getting changed

I'll try dns servers after sending this mail

Greetings

Koos

Looks like an ESET activation crack was run on the machine which modified the hosts file. Please remove the last line referring to *.eset.com and reboot the machine.

YES, YES, YES, It works (doing happy dance right now)

Thank you so much @Marcos

When i got this laptop there was some software which I removed very quickly and replaced by legal.
As a antivirus there was AVG, but I love ESET better.

So many thanks
