How do I activate my purchase with an iLok License Key? Back to knowledge base

iLok now supports online activation and cloud-based license management, so you can activate and move your license between computers (and dongles) easily. This is all done using the iLok License Manager.

You can create an account for free at iLok.

Then you will need to download iLok License Manager.

To help you with this, we have created a quick video tutorial to follow. Alternatively, you can read the instructions below.

The easiest method to authorize your copy of Dehumaniser 2 is to follow the instructions in the video above.

Alternatively, you can open your DAW and attempt to run the plugin. Some DAWs will automatically scan your plugin folder or startup and prompt you to authorize any new plugins. If this does not occur, open a copy of Dehumaniser 2 in your session. An iLok window should appear. Click ‘Activate‘.

You will now need to log into your iLok account. Enter your User ID and password. You may need to wait a minute for your license to activate. Make sure you are connected to the internet.

At this point, you will be prompted to choose the location for your license. You can activate it directly onto your local machine (the computer you are currently using) or to an iLok dongle. If you intend to move your copy of Dehumaniser between computers regularly, we recommend you purchase a dongle and choose this option. You can also deactivate your license from specific computers, or move it to, or from a dongle later using the iLok License Manager.

Remember you will only be able to use your license on one computer at a time.

If you have been able to log in to your iLok account successfully, your plugin will now be validated and ready for use.

If you have any issues activating or managing your plugin license, refer to iLok FAQ or contact Krotos support.

Once installed, you will find Dehumaniser in the appropriate location on your computer for each plug-in format.
