The iLok is a special USB device that holds your licenses for iLok-enabled software. Software publishers use the iLok to provide secure protection for their software. When you run their iLok-enabled software, it looks for the software license on your attached iLok.
Smaller, faster, and with even greater capacity, the new iLok is here! The Third Generation iLok is fully compatible with software created for the second generation iLok. With its smaller form factor and metal body, it is more robust and less prone to casual damage.
In order to use an iLok, you'll need at least 3 things:
Your iLok will need special License Support software in order to talk to the protected software. Your protected software most likely installed this special software, but you can always get the latest version of this software by installing the iLok License Manager.
The iLok License Manager is an application for managing your iLok-protected software licenses.
The iLok License Manager and License Support software have the following system requirements:
Mac OS X 10.7 or above
Windows 7 or above
If you need to use your iLok on an older system, please see the legacy installer page here: Legacy Versions
