Akai Advance 49 dead hard drive

How to solve this problem?

i wrote to ilok support


Hi! Didn't find where to write about my problem! My hard drive is dead so i can't deactivate my licenses! I just reinstall the system. How i can deactivate my licenses on dead hard drive?

And got this answer


Because the licenses are stored on the computer, there is no way to deactivate the licenses without access to the computer. Since we do not have the authority to distribute additional licenses, you'll need to contact the software publisher for help with this.

Understand that the software developers are the only ones capable of licensing their products. PACE merely builds the infrastructure for the software publishers to distribute their products in the way that is consistent with their licensing terms.

Best Regards,

  • Hi SoulDisco,

    Thanks for posting!

    Software authorization claims are not handled here on the forum but I can point you in the right direction! Here are a couple of options that you could choose from:

    • Submit a Software Authorization Assistance inquiry with our Technical Support team by logging onto the Akai Pro Support page. Select Software Authorization Assistance from the drop down menu.


    • For quicker support, call your nearest Support Office.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
