Default iLok always opens cloud session

At some point while going from computer to computer in our Music lab, I accidentally clicked "don't ask again" and "start cloud session" on two of the macs. One doesn't matter right now, it's the instructor's; the other is a student one and I need to undo those dumb clicks.

I've searched everywhere... all I get is information on how to start and close cloud sessions, but not turning off always start.

Hi,
I am not in front of my Mac at the moment, BUT...I am an IT person. In almost ALL instances in other software programs, that is a preference or setting.
Have you looked in PT preferences?
Might be a stupid question.
Just trying to help.

I've looked in PT prefs AND in iLok manager prefs. I'm looking through .plist files right now in hopes of finding something that may help

How about system prefs? Sometime software writes to there.

When you closed the iLok cloud session did you move the PT asset to the iLok? It becomes available when you close the cloud session. Also, not sure why iLok would auto start unless maybe it's in the user profile to start on login.

Start an iLok Cloud Session automatically when launching Pro Tools or from iLok License Manager instead and continue to use a mix of license locations to authorize some software via dongle and any supported software via cloud session.


Any way this helps? Looks like it might be in License Manager.

Or this??

1.Install the latest iLok License Manager
.
2.Ensure you have cloud-enabled licenses in your available tab
.
3.Launch Pro Tools and run through the activation prompts. Enter your iLok ID and password when prompted
.
4.When a Cloud Session has started, your cloud-enabled licenses will appear under “Cloud” in iLok License Manager in the locations pane under “Local”



Using the iLok Cloud licenses without a physical license key is called a “Cloud Session.” When you start up Pro Tools without an iLok dongle inserted, you will be presented with a screen with the options to “Quit” or “Activate”. Select “Activate”, and follow the log in instructions on the screen that follows. Once you log into your iLok account, an iLok Cloud session will start and Pro Tools will run without a physical dongle until the iLok Cloud session is closed through the iLok License Manager.

You now can use your licenses from whichever machine you begin a “cloud session” on. If you attempt to launch Pro Tools while a Cloud Session is still running elsewhere, you will be prompted to automatically end that session in favor of a new one. The Cloud Session on the original computer will be automatically closed (prompting a save and quit if a Pro Tools session/project is still open there).

Being able to run Pro Tools without a dongle is something the audio community has been requesting for a long time, so we answered. But, we know there are many users who feel more secure with a physical dongle. Of course the latest version of Pro Tools 2018 continues to fully supports physical iLoks, as well.

Does this help from the iLM guide? It's in Preferences > General...

If you’ve hidden any of the dialogues that appear during or after certain operations, you can use the “Show all hidden dialogs” button to turn them back on.

I'm going through that now, finding avid, protools, and pace ones and putting them in a desktop folder

I've tried that multiple times and it didn't work. I'll try it again as soon as I can freely open ProTools and not kick the instructor off
