Key Highlights
  • USB Device
  • Stores your software licenses
  • For iLok-enabled software


The AVID Pace iLok 3 is a special USB device that holds your licenses for iLok-enabled software. Software publishers use the iLok to provide secure protection for their software. When you run their iLok-enabled software, it looks for the software license on your attached iLok.

The 3rd generation iLok is smaller, faster, with greater capacity, and is fully compatible with software created for the second generation iLok. With its smaller form factor and metal body, it is more robust and less prone to casual damage.


  • Portable, to authorize your software anywhere it is installed; keep your software licenses with you, not on your computer
  • Convenient and cross-platform; store your Mac and Windows iLok-enabled software licenses all on a single iLok
  • 3rd Generation iLok can hold over 1500 license
  • Safe, secure solution with Zero Downtime™ protection available fpr 24/7 peace of mind
  • Simple management: using the iLok License Manager application, you can:
    • View what is on your iLok(s)
    • Download new licenses from participating software publishers
    • Manage your licenses, including moving them between iLoks within your account and from your iLoks back to your account
    • Transfer licenses to other iLok.com accounts
  • In order to use an iLok, you'll need at least 3 things:
    • iLok 3
    • A license for the iLok-protected software you want to run (you’ll need to have the publisher place this license in your account or send you an Activation code)
    • The software that is iLok protected (usually a download from the Publisher's or retailer's website)

NOTE: Your iLok will need special License Support software in order to talk to the protected software. Your protected software most likely installed this special software, but you can always get the latest version of this software by installing the iLok License Manager (the iLok License Manager is an application for managing your iLok-protected software licenses).

The iLok License Manager and License Support software have the following system requirements:

  • Macintosh: Mac OS X 10.7 or above
  • Windows: Windows 7 or above (32-bit & 64-bit)

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you need to use your iLok on an older system, please refer to the legacy installer page.
