Each PLAY library comes with an authorization code that is either affixed to the disc wallet or sleeve, or if purchased with a Hard Drive these may be emailed to you in your invoice. After installing the PLAY software and library, the ‘Authorization Wizard’ program must be used to authorize the software to your physical iLok key (which is required for all PLAY titles).
There is no authorization code for Play. Play is just the sample engine that all the libraries reside within. The authorization codes are for the individual Play Libraries which can input into the Authorization Wizard one at a time, one after another.
PLEASE NOTE: you cannot transfer PLAY licenses to an iLok that is not registered to your iLOK account. If you have multiple iLoks and plan on transferring your PLAY license between them, make sure they are registered to the same iLOK account!
To authorize your PLAY product to your iLOK USB key, do the following:
IMPORTANT NOTE: After you authorize your product for the first time onto your iLok key, all further authorization management happens in the iLok License Manager application. Because of this you never need to authorize again after the first time, and your authorization codes will be ‘used’ and no longer work. Should you ever switch to another computer simply plug the key into that computer.
PLATINUM PLUS: For each installed section, you must have the Platinum license for that section, as well as thePlatinum Plus license for that section (meaning for each installed section you will have two licenses). If you have an installed section without authorizing it, you will not be able to load any orchestra sounds.
PLATINUM: For each installed section, you must have a Platinum license for that section. If you have an installed section without authorizing it, you will not be able to load any orchestra sounds.
GOLD COMPLETE: You must have both a Gold license as well as a Silver license to run Gold Complete. Gold Complete comes with both of these.
SILVER COMPLETE: You only need a Silver license only to run Silver.
