Anything about MUSIC but doesn't fit into the forums above.

If the Ilok Licence Manager is on the OS drive for the sake of protection why not just clone the drive?
I suppose that should work?
I don't think that will work either.

When you clone the system drive, and use it on another system with other hardware, there can be driver related issues. It's not as trivial as on Linux.
Plugins and a DAW. On an operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Any issues if you clone a drive as backup to use on the same PC?

I think that's no problem.

Anyone had an issue of iLok creating new "locations" on the same system, thus creating a detritous of non-existent locations. I've just had to navigate the support requests of 8 companies to try to solve this issue. It's still not resolved after 24 hours of constant emails to 8 companies + PACE.
Their system is stone-age in 2021.

I have had this once when updating my Windows 10. The only thing I could do then (according to PACE) was to contact all the developers. They were very forthcoming though, since the probably know this happens from time to time, but after this I purchased an iLok key, and also signed up for the ZDT subscription (in case the iLok key would break).
