DigiLink IO License NOT perpetual????
 
i own 2 PT Ultimate (HD) License , one with a current ,
never interupted UpdSuppPlan and one , where the plan ran out
after vers. 12.7.1. in 2017.



I purchased both Licenses along with Hardware

(the current one with HDX , the expired one with HD Hardware (in 2010))


Both show a DigiLink IO License , the current one WITHOUT expiration date,
still working with AVID interfaces , BUT


The Ilok , where the UpdSuppPlan expired in 2017 , shows an
expiration Date for the DigiLink License of 30.10.2016 (!!!!!) and
is NOT active.



Since i purchased this License long before avid introduced the
seperate DigiLink License , it should be PERPETUAL without expiration date.






SO , why is this License expired ..?


i want my license back! Jeffro?

I'd like to know the answer as its very relevant with this new pricing strategy that has me leaning to not renewing in the future. Loosing my DigiLink license would really piss me off......

Perhaps this was a temp license provided during the rollout of new licenses for 12.6... will check it out and report back.

Much respect but you didn’t answer the question. I am current ultimate, if for some reason I choose to not renew, do I loose my Digilink license?

The Pro Tools DigiLink I/O License (in a Pro Tools Ultimate license bundle, purchased from the Avid Store or Reseller, or provided with an Avid Interface) is perpetual, so would not expire if one let a Pro Tools Ultimate Update & Support Plan lapse. Check yours (standalone or within the bundle) in iLM - it should be listed as a License (Type) with no Expiration Date.

Everything working now!


Thx Jeffro , much appreciate your fast help.


It was indeed a (forgotten) temporary DigiLink License on this Ilok ,
which i received from avid in 2016 which made trouble...



and YES ...DigiLink is PERPETUAL
