So I am installing and configuring Coveo 5 for Sitecore, first time

There is a new activation interface, not just the dialog as before but now a whole page

I can't get past this error, the Coveo activation interface won't accept admin/b as good credentials, I've tried another admin account. There seems to be some error in it's ability to take the "Sitecore Credentials". Anybody seen this one?

You must also enter the domain, like "sitecore\admin".

This call is using IIS' credentials validation method, Membership.ValidateUser, which requires you to use the domain (unlike Sitecore's AuthenticationManager).

Our team has been made aware of this and might change it in the future, but as of now, please use the domain :)
