Default Pro tools asking for activation after renewal

Aaand... it is happening again :-( I paid my yearly subscription (before expiration, of course) and now Pro tools won't start asking to activate. Falcon is gone, too. Can't find a way to fix it. It has to be simple - take the money, make the thing work! I opened a case, but I can't use Pro tools until fixed. It will take days - based on my previous experience. Any ideas - can I do something on my side?

I have exactly the same problem, renewed my sub today 27/3, made sure it was the correct one I was renewing and Falcon is gone. (It wasn't even showing in my account before I renewed my subs). This happened to me last year to, but when it asked to activate Pro Tools, an iLok page came up and gave me the option to activate Ultimate, which I duly did and Pro Tools now works. But it seems to have "upgraded" itself to the ultimate version. Avids renewal system seems to be the most confusing one I've ever encountered.

There’s a generous $100 Crossgrade from Pro Tools Falcon to the full UVI version of Falcon – so I Crossgraded my Perpetual license:

Avid Falcon crossgrade to full UVI version for $100 includes a $100 voucher!

"Falcon crossgrade for users of Pro Tools - get the full version of Falcon for only $100 (regularly $349) - this deal includes a $100 Voucher!"
This Voucher can only be used for UVI Soundware: https://www.uvi.net/soundware-overview

"As a special way to say thank you for your continued support, we also include the $100 voucher good towards any soundware purchase on uvi.net (voucher code delivered by email after registering your Falcon license).
Each license of Falcon, like all UVI products, can be activated on up to 3 systems concurrently via iLok, and will work in standalone and across all major DAWs (VST, AU, AAX).
UVI provide your personal Falcon voucher code
Code linked to your personal account and valid once at uvi.net for a month."

Submit a request for a “Pro Tools - Falcon AAX Crossgrade” here:
For Windows users who need to move the “.ufs” files to a separate Samples drive, UVI initially default installs the SoundBanks here:
C:\Program Files\UltimateSoundBank\UVISoundBanks

After reading this Thread, I asked UVI:

Can Pro Tools Subscribers with a current Subscription Plan
or Pro Tools Subscribers with an expired Subscription Plan
also purchase the “Pro Tools - Falcon AAX Crossgrade” from here:


UVI replied:
“Any Pro Tools owner with a current or expired Avid Falcon AAX license is eligible for this Falcon Crossgrade.”

So there you go!
Pro Tools Ultimate 2022.12
