Troubleshooting Guide

iLok Activation Issues:

If you’re being asked either to enter an iLok redemption code, that all your licenses have expired, or that the “authorization was found, but the wrapper could not verify”, your iLok dongle or iLok Cloud session may not be correctly seeing the PACE server.

First, we always recommend our users to be running the latest version of the iLok License Manager which can be found here:!license-manager

Next, we’ll need to either synchronize your physical iLok dongle or reopen your iLok Cloud session depending on your activation location.

Physical iLok dongle:

Right click your iLok dongle on the left hand side and select synchronize


iLok Cloud:

  1. Open your iLok License Manager and sign into your account.
  2. Click File in the menu bar, and select Close Cloud Session. This will temporarily deactivate your license.
  3. Reopen your cloud session by clicking File and selecting Open Cloud Session.


Note: It’s possible your iLok Cloud session is already close or opened on another machine. If this is the case Close Cloud Session will be greyed out which means instead of closing the session first, you may need to open it. You’ll be warned that the previously open cloud session will need tool be closed first. This is fine as only one All Access Pass licenses can be active simultaneously.


I can't activate Fresh Air to my Computer

Fresh Air can not be activated directly to your computer. The Fresh Air license can be activated either via iLok Cloud or iLok dongle. In order to activate Fresh Air via iLok Cloud, please update the iLok License Manager and open an iLok Cloud session (File->Open Cloud Session).

Licenses aren’t showing in my iLok account

When purchasing or registering a products, the purchased licenses are automatically deposited to the iLok ID linked at purchase. If you accidentally linked the incorrect iLok ID or used your email address as the iLok ID at purchase (your email address isn't always your iLok ID), you'll need to change your iLok User ID to the correct iLok ID. This can be done in the "Account Info" section of your account:


This can only be done once, but due to the influx of tickets, we are expecting longer wait times and we want you to be able to use your products as soon as possible. If you redeposited your license to the wrong iLok ID, sign into the linked account (if you're able to) even if it isn't the correct one. This will allow you to use your products while you wait for us to respond and redeposit the licenses again.
