Good Day everyone
It seems we have again another problem with the Activation server IP not found.
I had issue after Windows 10 update and caused some issues with ISD, uninstalling and installing was the only way, however when come to activation, i received Activation Server IP not found error and cannot continue my work. 

PS: I am connected to the internet as I am submitting this issue.. 😉

May you advise please.
Regards
Joe

Dear All Sorry for bothering you but I found the issue and managed to resolve it and mainly was blocking the activation server from the host file in windows 10 folder. I commented those lines and managed uncommented them thereafter and Activation worked.
thank you so much

Dear Joe and Adiaz1

Please describe the exact steps you had taken to resolve your activation
issues. It will help many users who are scared to update their windows version.
or move ISD to more powerful computers.
(including myself..!)

hello Krishna
simply all you need is to add couple of lines in your HOSTS file which is in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc.

Close ISD, edit the hosts file and add the following, restart Windows and you should resolve the activation issue.

Hello Krishna
to the best of my knowledge and from your topic, it seems that you done a fresh install, that requires you to activate the license no matter what you do, the suggestion i mentioned before only works after the license activation, so you my bypass the license server issue if it comes up at a later stage. from what I see possibly the the license server is down.

Dear Joe
Thanks for the knowledge.
No, I have not done a fresh install.
I am still stuck with a Windows Vista laptop where ISD is installed.

Now I want to move this installed copy to a new laptop or PC with Windows 7 / 10.

With ISD going out of biz and activation server running amock... 
I really dont know whether I can move at all.

Is there a way to move the installed copy to without activation?!!

regards
Krishna

hi Krishna
Unfortunately, you have to install ISD and get it activated. To the best of my knowledge I've done a fresh installation last month on one of my laptops and activated fine. Currently you still can activate a fresh install and then add below lines to HOSTS file so you will continue working in case the license server goes down. make sure the new machine has the same machine name as per your ISD account or change the machine name from your ISD account.

However there are tools to restore application with registry keys and license, but here try this old method of how to move application from one machine to the other.
