No license engine available?

VST Live doesn’t start
“No license engine available. The programm will quit now”.

Please let me know the reason ?

What if that will happen on stage ?

Maybe a System update? This things happens sometimes when your os is doing an update. Happens last time on a gig (gladly I realised during Soundcheck) with vst instruments and effects. Not vst live but it was also a license thing. I reinstalled then Ilok and all worked fine again :slight_smile:
Could that be your issue that your os did an update?

ok, thanks. I’ll care for that.

I can understand that! Let’s find out what happened on your computer. Please locate the following folders
Win : C:\Users\Your_UserName\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Activation Manager
Mac : /Users/YOUR_USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Activation Manager
Zip the folder and give it to us. Then we are able to analyse the scenario.

Thank you,

After restarting the machine the problem had gone.
