2017.1 offline not working

    I am unable to run in offline mode. I did a manual activation of my license to see if that would help but it doesn't.

    If I disable my internet connections it will recognize its as offline and i can get into unity.

    As soon as i reconnect it prompts again for the login. I enter my account it, waits and says work offline. I choose work offline. The window closes and then another opens again. This happens constantly.

    I am currently in China and it seems the login server is not available.
    I did not have these issues previously on 5.6.

    Basically its not possible to use 2017 now. As being disconnected from the internet is not really an option.

    Offline is also not working for me on 2017.1, when i open unity when there's no internet it simply shows an empty window and i cant select any projects or anything. hopefully this is not intended and will be fixed soon?

    I've also ran into the same problem i.e. when I start Unity without a net connection it prompts me to work offline, however after clicking the button, I end up with an empty window same as @CyanSlinky.

    A simple workaround for now is to open the scene you are working on directly from Windows Explorer. This way you'll be able to keep working on you project instead of having to rollback.

    Same here. I lost internet connection two times in the past two days and I couldn't work on my projects due to the issue described.

    Is there a way to force offline mode or somehow avoid launcher while opening the projects?

    Edit :
    I tried to open the recent project from the context menu in the taskbar, but that still starts the Launcher.

    Why isn't it working?

    EDIT:

    Removing the licence files from the programdata folder and redoing the activation process, the launcher should be able to work now.

    Doesn't work for me :(. The launcher still show blank instead of giving me the work offline option if i block it with firewall.

    Either let unity access their server or turn off your wifi. Opening the scene workaround works though

    That's just my own solution that seemed to work.

    The computer is completely disconnected from the network (no network cable is connected, Wi-Fi is turned off):

    1. At the first start, right after the splash screen, an empty window appears, in which there should be a list of projects.
    2. When I close the window and start Unity again, the window will show the button for going offline, but it does not work.
    3. And only after the next closing of the window and restart runs as expected - the switch button works and a list of projects appears.

    When your computer is connected to a network without internet, it seems that Unity just wait for internet to come without giving the choice to work offline.

    Try to disconnect from your network by unplugging the cable/disabling your network and relaunch Unity, it should work.
