Can't reach activation server

Post by MatthiasBrasch »


after installing Powershell Studio 2019 I'm getting the attached error message when trying to start the program.
Pressing "Wiederholen" (which means "retry") does not help and pressing "Abbrechen" (which means "abort") just ends the program.

Can you help me ?

It seems there is a bit of a DNS issue going on in Europe. It is not on our side, where everything appears to be running normally.
If you can, try using or as DNS servers. (may need reboot)
If that helps, it is a DNS issue in your area.
