Frankly, I'm of the "fish" variety. I've been on any and all sides of the argument and have gotten to where I just use the shit, the copy protection is no longer of any consequence.

Put me in the "not a fan of ilok" category now. All of a sudden it stopped working and I can't use any of my ilok plugins, inlcuding falcon which I just bought. I've reinstalled several times and deleted some database files that UVI suggested. Still can't open the ilok manager. Might have been a windows update, not sure. Hopefully ilok support can help, but I'll take challenge/response any day. Never had a problem with that.

Type "services" in to windows search and run that, then from that list that opens, look for "PACE license services" and look if it's running.

If not, hit it with right ear and "start". Also check the properties for it and make that start -option as "automatic -delayed start".

Does this help?

Looks like you do need a permanent internet connection, but they claim the process works seamlessly

I used to be of the "fish" variety too but my patience was eroded... in numerous places :? 3D modeling/rendering software wore me down (every single one). Cakewalk wore me down. Microsoft wore me down. The PC industry wore me down. Now Apple is wearing me down and I've no where else to go.

How about iLok Dongle RAID Array...
Just kidding.

I use an iLok Hub/Monitor Stand for PLAY, UVI, etc.

i personally dont mind using software that uses protections like ilok or elicenser but i do worry a bit about if drive/usb fails having to contact multiple support teams would be a pain

my elicenser stopped working once and i had to do the replacement process and buy a new one but that was not so bad because it was only my cubase license

this ilok cloud thing i am not so sure about using though if it needs constant connection i like to unplug from the internet so i can focus instead of waste time
