Activation Problem

edited February 2017 in Express Support

Hi there,

I have been trying to activate Hitfilm Express 4 all day without any luck. I have read the other forums but I don't seem to be coming right. I am running Windows 10 and I have my activation code from my account. 

When I click on "Activate and Unlock", I type in my email and password and it states that my computer is activated. When it says "close and restart program" it does nothing and the activation screen pops up again. I have restarted the program, my computer and uninstalled the program and it still does not want to activate. All I want to do is export the video as a file and not on Youtube.

Can someone please help me.
