You may occasionally receive the following message when launching SME:
SKA Error 4: Your license has failed to authenticate. Please make sure to check your connection to the internet. If the issue persists please contact tech support

This message is displayed when you launch SME and the application cannot access the High5 software licensing site. SME attempts to contact the licensing site 4 times when opening.

This occurs when either of the following two criteria cannot be met:

2) Our licensing site is experiencing issues

To address the first scenario:
1) SME will attempt to contact the site 4 times
2) Click ‘Ok’ each time the message is displayed
3) SME will open after the 4th time.

To address the second scenario
1) Go to your Windows Start> Control Panel> Internet Options
2) Click on the Security Tab> Trusted Sites Icon


3) Click on the Sites button
4) Add the following URL’s to the Trusted Sites:
7) Click Close.
