Problem with online activation of Notion 6 on Windows 7


As of February 2022, it is now necessary to enable the TLS 1.2 protocol on Windows 7 in order to do an online activation of PreSonus Software.  Here is how that you can activate a supported version of Notion 6 on Windows 7 now: 


1.  You can download the zip file that is attached to this article, extract it, and double-click the reg key file that is inside.  This will simply add the following registry entries to your registry, to enable TLS 1.2.  TLS 1.2 is a more-secure protocol than what is supported by default, and if anything, this should have a positive impact on your Windows 7 machine.  Please keep in mind that Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft and is not recommended for use.  YOU MUST REBOOT AFTER RUNNING THE REGISTRY KEY FROM THIS ARTICLE.

*** It may be necessary to disable your antivirus software to run a registry key on your system. ***


Below is the data that will be added to the registry upon double-clicking the reg key:




[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.2]


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.2\Client]
