2018 Classic License

I recently had a HDD crash and am trying to reinstall my perpetual 2018 classic license, however I am unable to get to a screen that accepts the authorisation code, will this version still work?

if on the same system and no more recent version (2019+) was activated ever probably the dreaded “offline” error caused by using a in the meanwhile broken URL of another company (sigh) for the online check, the fix is here.

Thank you! Have wasted a few hours on this and that’s sorted it
