Step 5: Activate Licenses

To activate a license, go to the ‘Available’ tab where you’ll see a list of licenses associated with your account. Drag and drop the license onto your iLok USB icon or your computer icon in the sidebar to activate it.

Step 6: Managing Licenses

You can manage your licenses by transferring them between your iLok USB and your account, deactivating them, or moving them to the cloud. Right-click on the license to see available options.

Step 7: Keep Your Software Updated

Regularly check for updates to the iLok License Manager software. Keeping the software up-to-date ensures compatibility with new licenses and features.

By following these steps, you’ll have your iLok License Manager set up and ready to handle your licenses efficiently. Remember to keep your account information secure and to handle your iLok USB device with care to avoid any potential issues with your licenses.
