Trouble activating SynthV Pro - SOLVED (turn off antivirus)

(hey first post here)

I just purchased the DL version of Synth V and a voice bank. I’ve had no problems installing on my Windows but when I enter my activation code, it prompts me to check my internet connection (no problems there).

Is the activation server crowded or is it a user issue? Anyone else having this issue/got it to work?

EDIT: turn off Comodo

I don’t know the answer but

Just curious: which store did you buy from?

The AniCute. (turns out, it was my antivirus software)
