Kudos for providing all the information we need.
The 'hosts' file is fine and 'LOGINFAILED' means that your internet browser does have access to the license server.
In other words, there's something else that's preventing Lumion from accessing the license server during start-up.
That "something" is usually security software (anti-virus and/or firewall software).
Does it work if you temporarily turn on Windows Defender
and then temporarily turn off your 3rd party firewall/anti-virus software before running Lumion?
If not, what's the name of your anti-virus software and your firewall software?DISCLAIMER:

P.S. I'd recommend applying for the Lumion 8 Pro Trial
version as it includes the latest features:Knowledge Base article: Is there a Trial version of Lumion?
