when I go into vs2013 I get the error in the attached image.

  • cant login cause the login server is down
  • cant update license either

it does not allow me to load my project either but it automatically closes visual studio

    Hi @vasilis milingos ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    You need to enable/add TLS 1.0 or configure .NET Framework to support strong cryptography to use TLS 1.2 from registry.

    Please check this thread: Visual Studio 2013 Pro - The online service is not available.

    For configuring to support strong cryptography > press Windows key + R > type regedit > navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\.NetFramework\v4.0.30319 > add a new registry entry named SchUseStrongCrypto > set its type to DWord > set its value = 1.(or creating a new registry entry by using PS command)

    For enabling TLS 1.0 > press Windows key + R > type regedit > navigate to Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols > TLS 1.0 > Client > Enabled DWord value 1.

    Have a great day.

    Best Regards,
