I use both Max 5 and 4 concurrently, and was reinstalling Max 4 due to problems with a corrupted object.
On the install, i forgot to uncheck the iLok option (i don't use iLok, for all the obvious reasons).
However, the installer then failed (since i have no iLok), and the option to authenticate without iLok is now removed from my system.
Even worse, this has ALSO affected my Max 5 license and is blocking me from opening the Max 5 software, and Max for Live, insisting on an iLok (even tho i have already authorised Max 5 and M4L using the response mechanism...)
I figured i could uninstall the PACE / iLok extensions, but there are none in my system - it seems that it is just the installer that is now locked into the iLok option, blocking all use of Cycling products.
This seems yet another invasive and unnecessary aspect of using iLok - and one that i can't see how to resolve...
Does anyone know how i can get around this issue?
