Angry iLok driver won't install!

My G5 isn't connected to the internet, so I downloaded the iLok driver and tried to run the macextsx.dmg, but the computer says no and won't do anything. I'm new to iLoks, so maybe I'm missing something here, but the FAQ on ilok.com didn't help.

The only time I had this problem before, was when I tried to install the free version of Multi Inspector - that wouldn't work, either. The installer starts, but once I click 'continue', it won't even take me to the license agreement screen.

Well, I finally managed to install the driver, but I have no idea why it worked after failing 20+ times.

However, Softube's Metal Amp Room crashes Logic as soon as I open it, but the Dynamic Spectrum Mapper works fine. Both are demos, btw.

You have a Mac, so no particular need to fear viruses. My advice, in general, is to keep your daw online (or at least to connect it when you need it).
It will save a lot of time if you use plug-ins. Authorization, updates, etc. are much easier that way.

By the way, Softube's stuff should not crash Logic, even if you don't mention its version.
Be sure also, when installing new plugs, to have the latest iLok drivers.
