Step 3
Select a license from the list of licenses and click the “Activate Licenses” button highlighted in the top right corner of the screen.

Step 4
Select either a iLok Cloud Session or your iLok USB from the list of locations and click “Activate.” Then, you will be prompted to confirm your activation.

Additional Notes
