Dassault Draftsight 2016 (re)activation problem

thread1480-370679: Constant request for reactivation

If anyone is still having problems with Draftsight displaying an activation message and refusing to reactivate, I found that the following worked for me. I first found my email from Draftsight with the activation instructions (subject "Draftsight Activation" from activation @draftsight.com), clicked on the "click here" link at the "To complete the product activation process, please click here." message. It took me to the activation url, which told me that activation was successful. I then turned off the Windows firewall and started Draftsight, which then required me to enter my activation information. When I did a new message was displayed that told me to do what I had just done above regarding the activation email. I did this a second time, and it activated!

I hope this helps someone, as I have spent hours trying to make Draftsight work.
