You seem to be on track.
You sign up with the Avid Developer Program (which lets you download the developer version of ProTools - so you can test your plugin pre-signing)
Request the PACE EDEN tool kit
Get a contract from PACE, fill in/sign it, return it
The PACE EDEN Web access tool kit shows up in your iLok
Go to their web server, fill your plugin the details as they request and you are pretty much done.
Thanks for reply! After reading this forum, I was prepared for the worst. I emailed avid I wasn't sure they will reply. They did in a few days. I got my iLok license for Pro Tools Dev version.
Now the pain began. On Mac, I tried several dev versions. One from 2018 and 2019 just didn't pass the license check, but 2020 version finally worked. Looks like their iLok cloud doesn't work for the earlier versions and I don't have the USB iLok. At least, on Mac ProTools launches with no errors and seems to function. So I can proceed on Mac. FYI - OSX 10.11 El Capitain.
On Windows 10 - around 8 hours of constant tries&fails and no result. I tried adjusting the system settings (disable hyperthreading and CPU C-states, adjust high performance mode), installed/removed ASIO4all many times, tried my external audio interface with ASIO support - no luck. I posted a question at dev.avid.com forums, but not sure it will be any help there.
The errors I get in the log:

I have i5-8500T CPU with integrated graphics, asus B360-I motherboard, 16 gb ram, SSD drives. I thought integrated graphics was the issue, tried it on another PC with i7 and Nvidia GTX 960 graphics. Just THE SAME error. Maybe someone here will help me - what else to try?
PS. Am I right that I need this PACE EDEN kit to sign my plugin so it will run in normal PT versions; to test my plugin in a DEV version, it is enough to have just the DEV license in iLok?
