    Activation should typically take 10-20 seconds, never more than a minute. If appears to be taking longer than this, there’s probably something else wrong which would cause it to eventually fail.

    The most common cause of activation failures is not having connectivity – see our proxy doc for notes on setting it up correctly: If you still experience issues,

    Due to the diverse nature of issues that could still result in failures or delays, do write to us at or open a thread here: so we can investigate and resolve ASAP.

    I canceled the Activation and chose: Activate Later. I then noticed that MyEclipse was running several Processes:

    * Importing MyEclipse de...en Repository
    * Convert legacy STS 2.x Preferences
    * Legacy STS Project Checker
    * Servers

    This is the first time I've installed MyEclipse on this computer.

    Once those Processes completed, the Activation also completed (even though I canceled it and selected "Activate Later.")

    This process took well over a half hour to complete on my (obviously OVER powered) computer.

    On a Windows 10 (Enterprise) PC with a quad core hyperthreaded Xeon processor, 32 GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD drive, the activation process is impossibly slow. It often hangs and appears to be limited to 1.5GB of RAM (despite the fact that I installed the 64 bit version of MyEclipse).

    I also have a Gigabit connection to the internet.

    During activation, a model window stating, "Activating your license...," prevents me from using MyEclipse. Also, the bottom taskbar of MyEclipse shows "Importing MyEclipse de...en Repository" along with an indeterminant progress bar.

    During activation, Java consumes between 15 to 50% of the 4 core Xeon Processor. I see very little Disk Activity or changes in memory consumption.
