We have recently created a webpage to allow customers who have had difficulty activating online or wish to activate on a machine that is not connected to the internet, to create the activation file for themselves. The page is:

https://store.unity3d.com/manual/

If you are using Unity (the free version) click the Free activation tickbox and upload your ILR file, then click Activate Unity. Otherwise type in your serial number in the field provided. Within a second or two an ILF file should be downloaded to your computer.

When you restart Unity, please go to the Activation window (either it will start up on launch, or choose Help>Enter Serial Number (win) or Unity>Enter Serial Number (osx)). Select Manual Activation, click Next, then click "Read License" and choose the license file you downloaded above. Click Next, and Unity will read the file, and your activation should be complete!

Having problems with this process? Does the .ILF file you generate show as being zero KB? We have discovered an issue where the NAME of your machine may be causing problems with activation. using a character like ^ at the start of your computer name may cause problems. We have contacted Pace, who supply our licensing technology and asked them for assistance. In order to fix this issue you will need to alter the name of your machine and choose something valid. Anything beginning with A-Z should be fine

why automatic activation don't work for dial up connections. two of my friends could not activate using dial connections so they used this manual process.

I had to rename the licensing file that downloaded from.xml extension to .ILF to get it to be read on my Mac.
