FIFA 19 Demo does not connect to the internet for activation.

PROBLEM:
Download (Done)
Install (Done)
Then press Play on Origin (works fine)
Then press Play on Config. window (Dialogue box appears : Image attached below)
i really hope someone from EA or Origin can help me fix this, i've already tried opening up the ports, running both apps as admin, none of it worked.

This is a very bad issue that's been recurring for the past 3/4 demos of FIFA, there's always some problem with the demos not launching.
if the support for Demo is this bad, how bad is the support for the actual game?

Stuck with the exact same problem. Any leads to it ?

I have been trying a lot of stuff from the last 2 days to no avail.

Man, this is getting on my nerves now. I have tried clearing the hosts file as well still same error.

Talked to ea support and the tech guy gave me few steps to try but after no solution he was like , " we have received the same complaint from many gamers and our developers are working on  it"

Kind of Strange, does the full version work for you? 

I mean the older FIFA editions

It's a pity that none of them are providing a solution even after so many days.

Nope, the EA people certainly do not care if they lose customers, what's the point of even trying now... i'm just disappointed that EA can find new ways to * up the demos each & every year.

If you are seeing that error then you need to ensure that nothing is stopping Origin or FIFA 19 from connecting to the internet, have you disabled your anti-virus and firewall and attempted to launch the game?

also i need to understand one thing, if issues with the demo take this long to resolve, what's the point of downloading the 6-8GB demo and not even get the chance to try the game out before the actual game comes out?
