Online activation - TLS 1.2 supported?
I recently upgraded to LINQPad 7, but was unable to activate it online. My attempts failed with this error message:-
Error: Unable to contact licensing server:
The SSL connection could not be established, see inner exception.
Check for Updates also fails, presumably for the same underlying reason. This also applies to LINQPad 6, installed previously.
I successfully activated LINQPad 6 some time ago on this same PC via the same network connection. This problem occurs only on my work machine; online activation works fine on my home PC.
Our sys-admin tells me the likely explanation is a recently tightened security policy that requires at least TLS 1.2 for secure connections (client and server), and this might not be supported by the activation endpoint.
If so, I mention it here in case others hit the same problem. (If not, any ideas?)
The Offline Activation facility (https://www.linqpad.net/licensing/offline.aspx) is a useful work-around, so I'm now up and running :-)
