Quest Free Network tools will not activate

I have downloaded and installed the Quest Free Network tools but cannont get the product activated. I have identified my IT role and entered the e-mail address used for this forum and access to other Quest services but when I click finish it appears the process attempts to connect to the server and returns with a response "Unable to Activate License". What steps need to be taken to correct this issue.

    1. Run tool suite exe as administrator.
    2. Issues registering QFNT in a Proxy based Environment:

    In an environment with a Proxy server, The QFNT might not work as it requires proxy settings, which can't be configured as a part of toolsuite registration/configuration process.

    However, there is a hack to get the settings in.

    1. Close the toolsuite.
    2. Go to:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest Software\Free Network Tools\Toolkit.exe.config

    Open the file in Notepad.

    It will look like this by default:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

    <configuration>

    <appSettings >

    <add key="AppHelp" value="\help\ToolSuite.chm"/>

    </appSettings>

    <runtime>

    <enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/>

    </runtime>

    </configuration>

    Add the following, just above </configuration>

    <system.net>

    <defaultProxy enabled="false" useDefaultCredentials="true">

    <proxy usesystemdefault="False"/>

    </defaultProxy>

    </system.net>

    The final version will look like:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

    <configuration>

    <appSettings >

    <add key="AppHelp" value="\help\ToolSuite.chm"/>

    </appSettings>

    <runtime>

    <enforceFIPSPolicy enabled="false"/>

    </runtime>

    <system.net>

    <defaultProxy enabled="false" useDefaultCredentials="true">

    <proxy usesystemdefault="False"/>

    </defaultProxy>

    </system.net>

    </configuration>

    Save and close the file and you should be able to register the toolsuite.
