I followed the instructions I found on a couple threads and my offline key is still not working, Ran as admin, Emptied Temp folder restarted computer etc.... Ive tried this a couple times for my Far Cry 5 "Cheat Happens Trainer" and since you cant use a "Cheat Happens Trainer" on this game while on the internet I'm stuck.
Iv'e tried this key on both my FC5 "Cheat Happens Trainer" as well as my RE7 "Cheat Happens Trainer" with the same results.

Have you actually read the Offline Key instructions (download page or included txt file) instead of '... couple of threads...'?

Have you launched the Offline Key creator tool with admin rights on the very same PC you play your games and want to use it? Is your personalized key file called 2654608.key stored in the same location where the trainer exe file and have you verified that you are completely offline?

CH trainers take advantage of any internet connection present, no matter how slow it is, to perform the trainer authentication check.

Yes, I launched the creator tool with admin rights and yes it is in the same folder (In the case of both games mentioned) as the actual CH file and yes I went so far as to physically disconnect my internet connection.

Your AV or security software is likely blocking access to the key. Disable or completely uninstall it and try again. Make sure your key is brand new as some windows updates may cause it to stop working and require a new one.

Sorry, out of ideas and it's not something we can troubleshoot using TeamViewer as you have to be truly offline. I can tell you that BitDefender is notorious for still blocking our stuff even when disabled and exceptions are made. Otherwise, I have no other solutions to your issue. our server is online 99.9% of the time so you should be able to authenticate without issue unless you have personal internet problems.

The only problem as far as internet is that (To my knowledge) you can only run a cheat happens trainer on Far cry 5 while playing offline. If you attempt to run the game while connected to the internet with a cheat trainer it closes the game.
Headed to bed now, just got off work from 2nd job. I will try removing bitdefender entirely tomorrow and see how that goes.

Just to cover all the bases. You mentioned not being able to use a CH trainer online with FC5?

I bought the game on Steam and I never disconnect the net or use the offline key. I just first run the trainer As Admin while, as noted in the Readme.txt, making sure that the game is not yet running.

Then I press F2 to open the Folder Browser so I can select the root directory that the FC-5 game is installed in. For me, that's: \Steam\steamapps\common\FarCry5.

At the main menu for FC-5 I press F-1 and that's it. I'm on my 2nd play thru (NG+) now and I've not had any problems using the trainer at all.
