Unable to open project file due to expired iLok demo plugin

Post by studiojohnny » Mon Sep 02, 2019 3:09 pm

Greetings,

I have a file that I need to open that had a demo of Oxford Inflator on the master bus. The plugin demo has expired and now I can't open my file. When opening, I am only given two options: "Quit" or "Authorize". I can't authorize because I haven't bought the plugin and when I click "Quit", Live crashes.

Do I have to buy the plugin just to open my file or is there some other way?

Uninstall or Remove the plugin (.dll) from your VST folder. Then you will just get a warning about missing a plugin on your song when you open it. Remove the problem plugin and save. Done deal.
