Default How to enable Plugin-Demos? (e.g. Massenburg MDW)

Hi all,

I got my new PT HD system last week and I'd like to try some plugin demos. I installed the Massenburg MDW plugin, during PT launch it asks "TRY AUTHORIZE QUIT". When I try to enable the MDW demo manually without internet connection (I don't have my studio mac connected to the internet) all I get is a challenge code. Can somebody please tell me where to get the response code?

Thanks!

Matiz,

Normally you get 14 days to try it out. You use the "Try" option and then it will put a demo code onto your ilok.

After 14 days you can move the plug-in to the un-used plug-in folder (under library - Digidesign - plugins) so you don't keep getting the challenge.

regards
Scotsman

Hello,

thanks for your fast reply. Do you know if an internet connection is required for enabling the 14-days demos? I don't have my studio computer connected to the internet, so it asks to enable the demo manually.

All the best,
Matiz

Had this iLok been ever used before? It's possible that the demo has already been "tried." You only get one shot at the demo period per iLok.

I think you should start by the beginning (if it wasn't done yet):
The important process of creating an ilok account on ilok.com. That means making sure you remember the account name and password for later ;-)

Then register and synchronize your ilok. This can sometimes take a while for need of installing Internet Explorer first, the only web browser that supports the secure system used by ilok.com.

Only then will you be able to deal with demos, and eventually buy or rent plugins through Internet.

One little piece of advice : If you plan to install Waves plugins later on, that should be done on a SEPARATE ilok. The reason beeing that Waves does not manage authorizations through ilok.com. Better not mix systems

Safari is fully supported and runs fine here.
