EMS2012 doesn't activate on my vm. I have an internet connection [I am actually wriing this on that machine] and windows firewall is switched off on both, guest and host. No other AV running.

Any ideas any one?

    I have only ever seen this when there was some kind of virus scanner, proxy server, or firewall conflict. Are you able to activate on the host machine?
