    Hello guys. I found a solution that worked for me. I started unity hub with admin rights. It seems that with no admin rights, it couldn;t save the license file

    I make it work ! You Just have to mannually make licence. When you are making licence don't choose Get Personal licence but instead Activate with licence request and next go with instruction its preaty easy

    I can confirm that Alidsf #31 post works on MacBook Air 2020 with Apple processor. Close UnityHub, go to this folder ~/Library/Application Support/Unity and delete Unity_lic.ulf file. Then reset UnityHub and I was able to Activate my personal licence! Thanks so much man!

    I had the same issue, what I ended up doing was uninstalling Unity Hub and Unity Editor, and after reinstalling, it worked first try.

    Please Delete the old license from the repective folder
    Mac Ex: Library/Application Support/Unity and then try to download it.

    This is how I solved the problem.

    1. Delete file in C:\ProgramData\Unity
    2. Sign out of Unity Hub.
    3. Quit Unity Hub.
    4. Start Unity Hub
    5. Sign in of Unity Hub.
    6. Try getting a free license.

    I hope this helps you.

    Hi all, I'm sorry you're facing issues trying to use a Personal license. Please open a support case if you haven't done it yet so that your problem can be properly investigated.

    Thank you!

    This works for me.
    Somehow I already got Unity_lic.ulf (license file) from November 2019 in my C:\ProgramData\Unity, which may be the source of the problem getting a new free personal license.

    Hey guys! I have unity hub 3.7 on Windows 10 and it didn't want to activate free license. Checked the log files and saw it cannot access C:\ProgramData\Unity. Set the rights for users to modify and it worked immediatly.
    (Beforehand I also manually created the Unity folder in C:\ProgramData).

    I have seen this happen on multiple machines now, including my own. All of these machines run Windows 10/11 and therefore, the following only applies to Windows 10/11. Our machines have varying configurations (AD-connection, user account type, account permissions, Unity hub/editor version, etc.) and thus this may not be definite. The users of these machines use both personal and pro/industry licences.

    DID NOT solve the problem:
    - Running Unity hub as administrator
    - Signing out and signing back in to Unity hub
    - Reinstalling Unity hub
    - Installing different releases of Unity hub
    - Modifying the permissions for "C:\ProgramData\Unity"
    - Deleting the "Unity_lic.ulf" file
    - Deleting the "services-config.json"

    DID solve the problem:
    While Unity hub was not running, we deleted the entire "C:\ProgramData\Unity" directory. We then started Unity hub and were immediately prompted to accept the terms and conditions for the personal licence. Next, we exited Unity hub and manually created a new "C:\ProgramData\Unity" directory and the "\config" subdirectory.

    This may not be the case for you. Perhaps you will find another solution. This is just to document our efforts.
