Simply drag the license(s) to your iLok. When prompted, confirm the activation. You will see a progress bar underneath your iLok ID. It is important that you wait for the transfer to be 100% complete before removing your iLok or quitting iLok License Manager. When it’s done, you’ll be notified that the activation was successful. Screen shot 2013-08-21 at 2.28.23 PM
