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 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.

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.
