BackyardEOS license validation without internet access

Question

I'm trying to run a trial of BackyardEOS on an ancient computer (don't ask but it's necessary!). The computer has an internet connection but I can't get it to connect to validate my license. I'm guessing because there are all sort of security certificate issues when trying to access the web with an out-of-date OS. Here's the error:

"License activation error! Internet access is required to activate a trial key."

Is there anyway around this limitation?

Um, version is 3.1.3. It is very old and I believe that any Trial license that is less than 30 days old will only work with 3.2.1 or the pre-release version of 3.2.2.

I do not know if it will even run on XP. You would need a low-level driver for the camera, the required version of the .NET framework and some required C/C++ runtime libraries from Microsoft. Hopefully, the admins will confirm this.

Yes, I’ve got the camera driver (it’s an old EOS). the .NET framework and runtimes installed. BYE installed fine as well. I just get stuck at the license validation screen. I realize this is probably beyond what’s supported anymore...
