To apply the license, I used the steps in this knowledge document:

Sometimes when browser plugins like JavaScript, Active Scripting, or ActiveX are not enabled, you might receive this error.

CodeMeter requires these plugins to activate an Online Agile Designer license key. These browser plugins are not required prerequisites for using Agile Designer because you can use an Offline license key to activate the product. Some companies may not allow these plugins, and if this is the case, we recommend using an Offline license key. See the instructions below on how to receive and apply an Offline license key. 


This can be resolved by either enabling the mentioned browser plugin or using an Offline license to activate Agile Designer instead.
