I’m frustrated

How to succesfully install XPAND2 ???

Been trying to use XPAND2 for over a week now and getting no where. Never had problem installing any plug-ins before (and I have installed lots) which leads me to believe it's a PACE iLok issue since this is my only PACE/iLok protected software.

I have read lots of posts here and elsewhere online but nothing yet has solved my issue.

Xpand2 shows as licensed and activated on my PC (Win 10) in the iLok software but it never shows up in Cubase or Live (XPAND2 does have dll's in the 64 bit and 32 bit VST Plugin Folders and both DAWs point to those.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times with no luck. Sometimes I do get a popup indicating XPAND2 copy protection error (see posted image).

I read either good things about this plugin or people with issues getting it installed.

I would very much like say good things about it but need to be able to use it first!

Thanks.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. Sorry you're having issues with Xpand!2. I'll be happy to help!

    Can you please provide me with your full system specs? What are the steps you're taking for the error message you've provided to come up? Make sure you're using the latest version of the iLok License Manager, which can be downloaded from this link. I would also recommend running a Ccleaner scan. You can download CCleaner at this link.

    If you decide to download this:
    1. Uninstall you software
    2. Open CCLeaner
    3. Click Registry
    4. Click Scan for Issues
    5. Wait
    6. Fix Select Issues
    7. Click Yes to create a ‘backup’
    8. Click Save
    9. Click Fix All Selected Issues
    10. Run Steps 3-9 two or three more times until there are no issues found.
    11. This should have cleared out unnecessary files that may have been causing any conflicts.
    12. Reboot your computer
    13. Reinstall the software.

    Before performing the reinstallation, make sure your license has been deactivated. Here is a helpful guide that will walk you through the process of deactivating:
