Hi. I just purchased the software and after installing the applications I can't run any of them. Also, I had issues with accessing graphisoft id website. Seems like my computer is blocking the graphisoft website and apps. I turned off firewall, but still no luck in connecting.
I work on macOS Catalina 10.15.4
What could be a reason I can't access the software. Please help

this is what I see after trying to open

Thank you for your question and I am very sorry about the issue!

Have you tried to connect to GRAPHISOFT ID website with another browser?
If you cannot connect to, regardless of the browser that you are using and with Firewall turned off, there is a high chance that the connection to GRAPHISOFT is blocked system-wide.

To confirm this, I would like to kindly ask you to follow the following steps:
- Open the Terminal on macOS (Finder > Utilities > Terminal)
- Run the following command (requires admin rights):
sudo nano /etc/hosts
- Please type in your password, then press Enter.

Then please share with me the screenshot of the dialog appeared.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Best regards,
