Hey guys, I was searching through the questions here and haven’t really found an answer to the problem I am experiencing.
I recently decided that Unity would be a great engine to use to to do some simple game dev, so last night I downloaded and installed the most recent unity version from the website and since then I have had a real struggle even getting it to start. Unity version is what ever is the latest and I am trying to run it on a MacBook Pro with the latest version of Yosemite. Here is the problem I am having -
Upon starting Unity after installing, I get a little window that pops up with nothing but an “500 - Internal Server Error” message. Sometimes it will come up with the option to select my license, but most times it’s this error.
I tried doing a manual activation, but even going to the website I was constantly getting this error message, and would have to refresh the page, so I am assuming that there is currently problems with the license server? I guess that’s kind of question number 1.
Question number 2 would be that I was eventually able to get through the manual activation part online, and would download a text file, Unity_v4.X.ulf.txt, that the web page tells me is the license file. However, when I go to try and load it in Unity I have one of two problems happen. -
I either get a box that pops up telling me that I don’t have a license with the option to load or save one. This is where I saved the file that I loaded into the manual activation web page to create my license. However, from here if I go to try and load the license that I was given by the server, it won’t let me select the file that I downloaded.
I have also tried going to the Unity>Manage License menu selection, but Manage License is grayed out.
I was really looking forward to learning Unity, but I have never seen an application be so much trouble simply to get registered. Am I missing something here that is causing issues? Thanks in advance!
