Photo AI requires internet to authenticate every time I fresh boot

Traveling for the first time in a long time. In a hotel in Italy with lousy wi-fi. Not functional at all in my 9th floor room. Have to go down to the lobby. Topaz Photo AI won’t save without internet connection! Where it should say “Save to Photoshop” it says “Authenticating” (forever). I go down to the lobby and let wi-fi connect and all is good and stays good back in the room. Until I reboot Windows, then I have to start all over (back to the lobby).

What version are you using the latest is v1.2.9, have you searched the forum?
