Does iLok License Manager care CPU upgrade?

Hi all,
Over the last year I've acquired some plugins that are tied to iLok License Manager (no dongle, just the drivers and online auth). I'll be changing a quad core CPU for another quad core tomorrow if all goes well.

What's the chances iLok will play nice and i don't have to de-authorize them before swapping for the newer CPU? The computer's name won't be changed and I only have one partition to worry about.

I don't think it will be a problem, probably you need to download again the drivers or a new version.
In these cases I always suggest to write an rmail to the tech support of your plugins.

Best,
Andrea

Thanks for the response! I ended up deactivating the iLok plugins before swapping the CPU and it was easier than I'd made it out to be, and afterward activated them again.
In the past I've figured I'd go through life avoiding iLok because having all your eggs in one basket (or dongle) was too risky, but assigning licenses to computers covers 2 of them, and that's enough of a backup plan if something should go wrong.

Hoping for the day iLok can plug a dongle into a home or work router! They all have USB receptacles and that would be awesome. Well, all's good.
