I've been trying to getting Visual Studio Community working on my computer (both 2013, and 2015 RC). However, when trying to activate either version, I always come across the same error.
"The online service is not available. Please try again later."
or if I try to 'Add an account', I get the following error: "an error occurred while sending the request".
Yet the website reports it as being up, and I see little other mention of this problems (I've tried Googling the various terms, unless I'm doing something wrong there isn't any help out there).
I'm on a Windows 8 machine. I've checked for any hosts entries. I don't have a firewall running on my router or on my computer. I don't have an antivirus program running either. I've restarted my computer, reinstalled VS.
