Hi, I also have problems during authorization, but there is no code for it, it just says "Preparing authorization failed". I've read through the installation guide, got a second authorization #, and even created another account to get a third authorization # (and it did not work).  I have a good internet connection, I am working off of Windows 8, and I believe I meet all system requirements for using ArcGIS 10.2 Advanced Single use. Any thoughts?
