IK Product Manager - tips

Postby DarkStar » Tue Dec 22, 2020 9:49 pm

This may help new users of the IK Product Manager ("IKPM"):
  • The downloads / installs of the software and the Sounds Libraries are on separate tabs in the IKPM
  • Before you download anything, go to Settings and select the desired folder for the downloads
  • Before you download and install any Sound Library, click ... More options > Install to... to and select the destination folder (e.g. L:/IK Multimedia/SampleTank 4).
  • Download/install one software product at a time.
  • Download/install one Sounds Library file at a time.
  • Keep a back-up copy of the Sounds Library downloads (on a separate, unpluggable disk) so you do not need to download them again.
  • After successful installation you can delete the appropriate download files from the downloads folder to free up space.
in the IKPM, click the [?} button then "Manual" and it will open the IKPM user manual.

Hi Dark Star,
thanks for the tips!
I just changed the disk of my computers to SSD. So, I needed to reinstall everything from scratch. After installing IK PM I realized that my activations do not update back to 10... is this the normal behavior? ok, 10 are plenty of activations, but If I need, for any reason, to reinstall my OS, I will be losing activations...

thanks for the dark light!

cheers!

Yes, that is normal behaviour. For all the Authorization system knows, it could be a completely different system. Anyway, you probably have plenty left. And if you do get down to zero, all things being reasonable, Support will reset them back to 10.

"Before you download anything, go to Settings and select the desired folder for the downloads"

Does this apply for downloading the apps/programs and the sounds, or just the apps/programs?

Everything. But you can change it at any time (as long as no downloads are in progress).

I am trying to put the sound files on an external hard drive attached to my MacBook Pro. But when I select "install to" and point to that drive I get a long error message and the sound files won't download. Any idea why? I assume it is a Mac issue but I have given full permissions to the external drive for reading and writing. Supposedly I can download the sounds to my internal hard drive and move them to the external drive but that doesn't seem to work either - the directories get messed up because there are so many files and all the extra SampleTank sounds.
