iLok Issues: Purchased license, still receiving “0 Days Remaining” message

If you’ve recently downloaded a software demo that requires an iLok license and then purchased the full license but are still getting a “trial expired” or “0 days remaining” message, it may be because the trial license is still on your iLok. For some reason, the trial license will fight with your full license and prevent you from using your software. To fix this, follow the instructions below on how to deactivate a license.

1. Plug in your iLok and launch iLok License Manager.

2. Sign in.
