Due to iLok problems with MC 8.6.4 I upgraded to MC
8.8. using the Applicaton Manager. However, the iLok problem remains. PACE License
Support Win 64 Version 3.1.3. (included in MC 8.8 installer) was not installed.
So I deactivated MC 8.8, deinstalled MC 8.8, "License
Support" and "Interlok driver setup x64" as advised here: http://community.avid.com/forums/p/122828/706750.aspx#706750
(deinstalling "License Support" was only
possible using Revo Uninstaller). Then I installed and activated the download
version of MC 8.8.
Result: When starting MC 8.8, error message says the
necessary software for validation of the product is not running, I should first
install iLok license manager.
I downloaded and tried to install PACE License Support
Win64_v3.1.4_r36376 from www.ilok.com (the
only available version, however v3.1.3 would be needed). An error message says "Your Windows System needs updates to run this
software. 1603 fatal error during installation". I updated Windows 7, not
all of 24 updates could be installed.
Then I began the whole process from the beginning.
The problem is in PACE 3.1.3, which is integrated in
MC 8.8 installer. However, when I started MC 8.8 an error message "reinstall
or download and run iLok License Manager" appeared.
So I tried to download PACE 3.1.3 from the iLok
website directly, but only v3.1.4 was available. When I tried to install it, a Windows
system update was requested, which I did, with no success.
So I downloaded and installed a previous version, License
Support Installer Win64 v2.4.7, before I installed MC 8.8. However, the
integrated PACE 3.1.3 did not install, but v2.4.7 disappeared from
system/programs&features. Of course, when opening MC 8.8, "reinstall
or download and run iLok License Manager" appeared again.
So I installed again PACE 2.4.7. Now MC 8.8 runs with
I found with an older iLok version on some PCs, when MC 8.8 launched it would give error messages about disabling soundacards!
After installing 8.8.1 I find I am returning to more license issues. I was getting an error message when starting SN/MC that there was software not enabled, namely PACE iLok protection. I traced this to the delayed service start. If you get this message, RMC My Computer>manage>services and applications>services. Double click Pace License Services and change from Automatic(delayed start) to Automatic start. This sorted it for me and I am unaware yet of any other issues this may cause. I have an SSD drive on this system and it boots fast, may be too fast?
