    Hello

    When starting Unity 2017.2f3 I directly get the "Sign into your Unity account" pop up.
    Clicking "Sign in" I get "Service not available please try again later."

    We don't have any internet access, and use remote workstations so unplugging the network is not an option.

    How can I do offline eval activation?

    Thank you

    I'm not getting the "No network connection" screen.
    Instead the login screen, where "Sign in" is only option - clicking sign in throws "service not available"

    Nope, it is still there. In my case it is so that I have a server with network connections but not internet access, and I am not administrator. So when I start Unity it goes directly to the sig-in page, and I have no options to do a manual activation.

    attaching a modified version of the editor home js script which worked for me in previous versions.
    unzip and copy to:
    then launch Unity, give a wizard a moment to go into offline mode... dont click on "work offline" too quickly
