ProTools 10 – And it’s quirks

So I have finally gotten round to getting a hold of ProTools, I’ve been wanting it for I don’t know how long. Just to have fun and games getting it to work. Turns out the Pace License Support that comes bundled on the disk is incompatible (or at least has problems) with Win7. After much Google trawling I did however find this and I’ll share it here to help others should they come across it.

Error, missing iLok authorization for Pro Tools 10. Please insert the necessary iLok and restart Pro Tools. [430451]

Error when launching Pro Tools 10 on Windows 7…

Error, missing iLok authorization for “Pro Tools 10.”  Please insert the necessary iLok and restart Pro Tools.

– Verify that the iLok is seen in Windows Device Manager
– Verify that you can Sync/Update the iLok at www.ilok.com
– Verify that you have already installed the iLok Driver.

If Pro Tools 10 still will not recognize the License on your iLok:

1) Uninstall the iLok Driver
2) Restart the computer
3) Download and install the appropriate file:
4) Install the iLok Driver
5) Launch Pro Tools 10
Worked first time… well technically second time.

Now if you’ll excuse me. It’s time to go play with my new toy.
