The password recovery utility is not accepting my security answer or my birth date.

If you are getting an error when trying to recover your password, it is possible that you are entering the wrong birth date or that you are entering your security answer incorrectly.

  • Birthday: Did you use a different birth date? Try to think if you used something other than your real birth date.
  • Security Answer: The security answer has to be entered exactly as you first entered it in your account. All spacing and punctuation must match.

How do I remove an iLok from my iLok account?

Detailed information on the removal process, as well as the conditions that make an iLok eligible for removal, are in the FAQ entry "How do I remove an iLok from my account". To remove an eligible iLok:

  • Launch the iLok License Manager application and sign in.
  • Click on the iLok you want to remove.
  • Click the iLok's name, then click the "Remove iLok..." link.

Only iLoks eligible for removal will have a "Remove iLok..." link.

 
My iLok's status is "Awaiting Approval for Removal". Who needs to approve this?

Your iLok's status is "Awaiting Approval for Removal" pending the approval of a software company whose product appears on that iLok.

The name of this software company was given to you in the warning that appeared when you clicked on the "Remove" link to remove the iLok. Only this company can provide the approval necessary to clear this state. We cannot do the approval or reverse your request.

Unplug this iLok. If you continue to use the iLok License Manager with this iLok plugged in, you run the risk of re-attaching it to your account after the removal is approved by the software company. If this happens, you'll need to start the removal process all over again.

You can check on the status of your removal request by clicking on "iLoks & Licenses". Any pending approvals will be listed above your iLoks. The name of the company involved can also be found there.

iLok Reassignment: Transferring an entire iLok to a different account

  • Depending on the limitations on the transference of licenses on the iLok, we can perform an iLok Reassignment which will transfer an entire iLok with all of its licenses from one user account to another. The price to reassign an iLok is $US100.00 and is subject to approval by the registered owner of the iLok.

I no longer have the iLok, the new owner does:

I had new licenses deposited in the wrong iLok account. What do I do now?

If a pending license has been placed in the wrong iLok account, you will need to contact the software developer for assistance. They are the only ones that can recall the deposit and place the license in the correct account.

Understand that the software developers are the only ones capable of licensing and distributing their products. PACE merely builds the infrastructure for the software publishers to distribute their products in the way that is consistent with their licensing terms.

 
I bought a used iLok and it is already registered to the former owner.

Because an iLok can only be used in the account it is registered to, you will need to work with the registered owner to reassign the iLok and its licenses to your account.
