I am having the same issue here on two separate computers. I've tried reaching out but not a single word from DraftSight. This isn't the first time we have had issues with activation and this is something we should not have to worry about. It costs time and money and there is no care from the vendor.
Same for me: I was prompted to reactivate a week ago, and failed. After a day or two, I uninstalled, installed the up-to-date version, but no change. Seriously, if they're going to provide a few version with no technical support, then they shouldn't be asking for reactivation.
There are a few tricks you can try in here:
I advise you to try this:

This is what I did to fix the problem.
Start the Regedit program as administrator
Go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\Current Version\ProfileList
Identify the ID of the administrator used to install Draftsight and the ID of the user who wants to
Admin user : S-1-5-21-4270634972-2877105811-2816753613-1635
Draftsight user : S-1-5-21-4270634972-2877105811-2816753613-18733
Go to HKEY_USERS\< ID of the admin >\SOFTWARE
Rename SWActivation to SWActivation_OLD
Use a cellphone as a hot spot.
Do the activation like normal
The validation will go through the Cellphone hotspot and then an e-mail will come through.
Click in the link in the e-mail to activate.
THIS DOES NOT WORK
Uninstalled then went and cleaned-up all the reference for DraftSight from file explorer and into users.
Did not reboot.
Installed the latest installation file then went thru the process of activation.
All is finally working.....
No special internet setting or other methods.
Si tu rencontre encore des problèmes l'an prochain, essaie la technique que j'ai écris un peu plus haut. Elle marche à tout coups pour moi à date.
