Default Eleven rack expansion pack serial "already activated"

I used to have PT and ER installed on my windows pc.

Now, i recently bought a mac computer.

I was trying to instal ER expansion pack on my mac computer, when it tells me that the serial number is already activated, and it only can be use on 1 computer.

How can i install ER expansion pack on my mac?

thanks for your help guys,


if you need more info let me know, but I know I do not have any software related issues.

You dont need to.

Just run the first section of the ERXP that inserts the UI files, then delete the Firmware updater that gets placed on your desktop.

The Firmware Updater, once run, is locked to the Computer/OS it was run on. However, this is NOT a problem since you only need to update the firmware one time. Once the firmware is updated, there is no reason to run it again. The firmware updater does not update anything on the computer, it only installs the new amps, effects, cabs, mics, into the 11R itself, and you should already have those items.

So you are fine. Open up PT and all will be well.

Before I install this on my Macbook Air, are you sure this only works on one computer? If so I am waiting till I get my iMac for recording.

Only the actual firmware updater (that updates the 11R unit itself) can only run on one computer. Keep in mind, you only need to do this once.

The other part, which updates the 11R UI in Pro Tools can be ran as many time as you want, on any computer that has Pro Tools installed on it.

Pro Tools can also be installed on as many computers as you'd like. PT9-10 will use an iLok for authorization. PT8 will use the 11R or any Digi interface as the dongle.

What are you talking about installing? If you purchased the new 11R bundle the ERXP is already pre-installed on the unit.

This thread was about when you could only get the ERXP by download and then install it on your computer in order to update the firmware.

You are fine. As said, PT can be installed on as many PC's as you wish.

If the PC you are working at does not have the UI files for the 11R window in PT then just run the first section of the ERXP. You can download the ERXP here:

Great! :) What about being as I have a Macbook Air with no CD-rom... Can I at least plug it in to edit patches? Or do I need to get a CD-rom drive to install the drivers? They should be available online right?

Have you installed Pro Tools yet? As the Eleven Rack Editor window is currently only available when PT is open.

With PT 8.x.x and below, the drivers are installed automatically.

However, I assume that you have the new bundle with PT9 or PT10 in which case you can download the drivers for the Eleven Rack and other interfaces here:

PT came on a DVD? I thought the new bundles just included Activation cards that you would register on Avid.com and then a PT download would be placed in your Avid account and the license would be placed in your iLok account.

Be sure to create an iLok account by the way, and DO NOT forget the name!

If PT did come on a DVD you can take it to another computer and make an ISO image then place that on a thumb drive or portable HDD and then transfer that to your Air and run it. Or just make it easy and get a $30 USB DVD/CD drive, its always good to have one of these around anyway.
