btw my Internet connection works just fine!
This is what's wrong with all this online activation bullsh*t!
I would have agreed with you were it not for the dongle. You don't need an internet connection just to work with Reason since you can put all your licenses, including those for the RE's, onto the ignition key and be done with it.

Considering that the RE trial period is basically a courtesy, something you won't see other companies doing anytime soon, I'd say the requirement to logon in order to use that stuff is a very minor nuisance.

Just hit escape and be done with it, that's what I'm currently doing (saving up to get Polar and then I'm happy ;-))
With kind regards,


Using the Big Trio: Live 9 Suite, Max (for Live) and Reason 6.5.
