How to Download and Use iLok Tiger Reset 0.3.2 for Mac
If you are a music producer or audio engineer who uses iLok-protected software on your Mac, you may have encountered some issues with the activation or deactivation of your licenses. Sometimes, the iLok License Manager can get corrupted or fail to communicate with the iLok servers, resulting in errors or license conflicts. In such cases, you may need to reset your iLok device and reinstall the iLok License Manager.
However, if you are using an older version of Mac OS X, such as Tiger (10.4), you may not be able to install the latest version of iLok License Manager, which requires at least Leopard (10.5) or higher. This can be a problem if you want to use newer iLok-protected software that requires the latest iLok License Manager.
Fortunately, there is a solution for this: iLok Tiger Reset 0.3.2. This is a small utility that allows you to reset your iLok device and install a compatible version of iLok License Manager on your Tiger Mac. In this article, we will show you how to download and use iLok Tiger Reset 0.3.2 for Mac.

The first step is to download the iLok Tiger Reset 0.3.2 utility from the official website: https://www.ilok.com/#!tigerreset. This is a free download that does not require any registration or login.
Once you have downloaded the file, unzip it and double-click on the iLokTigerReset_032.dmg file to mount it on your Mac. You will see a window with two icons: iLokTigerReset and ReadMe.
Step 2: Read the ReadMe File
Before you run the iLok Tiger Reset utility, it is important to read the ReadMe file that comes with it. This file contains important information and instructions on how to use the utility safely and effectively.

You will lose all your local licenses stored on your Mac. You will need to reactivate them from your iLok account after running the utility.
You will not be able to use any software that requires a newer version of iLok License Manager than v2.5.4.
You will not be able to update or uninstall iLok License Manager from your Mac unless you upgrade your OS X version.
You will need to run the utility again if you want to reset your iLok device or reinstall iLok License Manager in the future.
The ReadMe file also advises you to backup your data and close all applications before running the utility.
Step 3: Run the iLok Tiger Reset Utility
