    Hi @bharu jeeva ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    From the similar issue, please try to enable/add TLS 1.0 or configure .NET Framework to support strong cryptography to use TLS 1.2 from registry:

    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.

    VS 2013 has been out of support for over 5 years. You cannot use it anymore and thus the registration system won't work. There is no support provided for this software anymore.

    You should upgrade to the latest VS 2022 Community edition instead. It is also free, has the same registration requirements and provides all the same functionality. Note that VS 2022 is Win 10+ only so if you're running an older OS then you cannot use it. The alternative is to download (from the same link) the VS 2019 version of Community. It requires Win 7 SP1+.

    If you cannot meet either of these requirements then you are out of luck. VS 2013 isn't going to work anymore.
