Lightwork After Installation Error “A connection to the licensing server could not be established. Would you like to start offline activation process?”


Just installed Lightwork on my Ubuntu 14.04 (inside Virtualbox) I downloaded it from here.

Everything just goes well on installation by double clicking the downloaded file : lwks-12.6.0-amd64.deb

then the problem was on offline activation that needed because off the app it self failed to contact the remote server, the error message was :

“A connection to the licensing server could not be established. Would you like to start offline activation process?”

Here is hot o fix following error :

  1. Register Yourself on Lightwork website using provided link (link is in app)
  2. Activate your account thru email that sent to you
  3. Upload your shark.c2e file to Licenses page (see mine : /home/yusuf/Lightworks/shark.c2e )
    • upload_c2e.png
    • lightwork_licaense.png
  4. Download your e2c file
    • downloaded_e2c.png
  5. Copy your e2c file to lightwork folder (see mine : /home/yusuf/Lightworks/shark.e2c)
  6. restart the application
  7. end
