My apologies for the OT nature of this, but this is surely one of the most knowledgable communities of ubergeeks online, and I'm getting no joy elsewhere…
Several months ago my Mac died and had to have a new motherboard installed (twice).
Since then, I am constantly losing and re-gaining authorisations for various bits of software, seemingly at random.
Most of it seems to be audio software, but that's probably because that's what I mainly use; MaxMSP, Pro Tools 9 and various Avid plug-ins, DSP Quattro, Waves plug-ins, IK Multimedia Plug-ins etc.
So there's various different authorisation schemes involved - iLok, challenge/response etc. - but they all seem to work or not work at the same time, i.e. some days I'll boot up and everything is authorised, next time I boot up nothing is authorised (well, not literally nothing, because some things like Office and FCPX still work, but all the apps/plugs mentioned above).
I posted a query with Apple back in early January - nothing. Not one single reply.
If anyone has the slightest idea what might be happening here and/or how to fix it, I would love to hear from them.
Many thanks in advance,
