    Hi @mtsmith, thank you for your post. 

    Please run the following command from an elevated command prompt:
    netsh http show iplisten
    You will likely see "::" in the output. Setting an IP listen rule wil mean that all other IPs are blocked. this will cause the Redgate Client to stop functioning. 

    You can either delete the entry with:
    delete iplisten address=::
    Or you can add an additional rule for the Client service:
    netsh http add iplisten 127.0.0.1

    Either way after making the changes above please reopen the tools and try to activate the license once more.
