    Hi Julien,

    Please, make sure you are connected to the internet and your firewall isn't blocking Capture One's request.

    Also, open a browser window, and go to activation.phaseone.com where you should see the following: "Activation service is alive".

    In case the connection to the server fails, it will give a 404 or another error. In this case, take the following steps:
    - Whitelist CaptureOne.exe from any firewall applications that might be blocking the connection
    - Uninstall and reinstall the application

    Hello Lily,

    Thank you for your fast answer.

    It was an issue with the ad blocker I use.

    Have a nice day

    Hi Leonid,

    Thank you for your comment.

    Please note that there is a single download package for any Capture One product variant.

    Thus, you can use one product variant at a time.

    When you want to use Capture One Express for Fujifilm, just enter the activation key and other details in the Activation window. When you want to use Capture One Express for Nikon, just deactivate the license of Capture One Express for Fujifilm first (go to the main menu and navigate to Capture One -> License -> Deactivate on Mac or Help -> License -> Deactivate on Windows). The next time Capture One is launched, just enter the license key for Capture One Express for Nikon.

    More information can be found here:

    Can I use several Capture One Express products on the same computer?

    I am having the same issue with Capture One 20 for Nikon. I have added Capture One to my firewall and I have uninstalled and reinstalled, no luck. And I cannot hear anything from support. I just subscribed yesterday but I am frustrated already and ready to request a refund.

    It shows like this.
    I have tried like you said above; whitelisting the exe from the firewall, reinstalling the program.

    Hi Vladimir,

    Please, note that you can use the Capture One Express license key only on 1 workstation.

    In case you want to use it on another computer, you have to deactivate the license on the first workstation (or from your account on the website) and then activate it on another computer.

    Hi Nicolas,

    Thank you for your question.

    Please, make sure that you got a license key for Capture One Express for Fujifilm from here.

    Also, please enter the e-mail and password which you use for the account on the captureone.com website.

    Let me know if that worked for you.

    Hi Mikhail,

    Thank you for the comment.

    The Express activation key can activate Capture One only on 1 workstation at a time. So if you have another computer where Capture One was activated with the same key, you will need to deactivate it there first to free up the activation seat.

    How to deactivate Capture One Express?

    If that is not the case, please follow the troubleshooting steps in this article.

    What am I doing wrong? o_O

    Thank you for the details provided.

    Please, let me know which operation system you run. Is it Windows or macOS? Please, also specify which exact version of the OS you run (i.e. macOS 10.15.6 or Windows 10 build 2004, etc.).

    Hi Mikhail,

    Please, try the following:

    • Make sure you are not using a VPN connection when activating Capture One. VPNs can also cause some confusion when trying to access the activation server. You should refrain from using VPNs when activating Capture One;

    • Investigate whether your firewall isn't blocking Capture One's request. Whitelist CaptureOne.exe from any firewall applications that might be blocking the connection;

    • Open a browser window, and go to activation.phaseone.com where you should see the following: "Activation service is alive". If the connection to the server fails, it will give a 404 or another error;

    • Uninstall and reinstall the application;

    • Check your hosts file;

    • If something is still blocking your connection, try renaming the file from Capture One 20.app to Capture One 20.1.app 

    If nothing from the above-mentioned options helped, try creating a new user on your workstation which won't have those restrictions.

    For activation Capture One on Windows 7, please also see these troubleshooting steps:

    "Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel" activation error on Windows 7

    Hi,

    Thank you for the comment.

    From what is displayed in the screenshot, I suppose that you have Capture One on 2 computers.

    Please note that the Express license key can be used on 1 workstation only at a time.

    If you use the same key on 2nd computer, the software is deactivated on the 1st one.

    No I don't have same Key activated on 2 computers.

    Pls read more carefully - I've ugraged Win10 to last official version on same PC whithout any HW changhes, so I suppose  C1 Activation or Security  system have a wonderful BUG.

    So I am pushed for smthng weird about it
