8.5 GA upgrade to 8.5 RU4
Unable to load licenses from the NS Server.
The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required
The resolution has to do with the Proxy settings in IE. If Proxy Settings are entered into IE > Settings > Connections > LAN Settings, then make sure that the box is checked for "Bypass proxy server for local addresses"
