How to authorize your products
As of June 15th 2012 the download, installation and authorization procedure for Addictive Drums and expansion packs has been made completely automatic. This means the description in Addictive Drums is outdated, this guide will tell you how to get up and running with Addictive Drums.
1. CLOSE ADDICTIVE DRUMS DOWN
The first step is to close Addictive Drums and your host or recording software down. This is important as Addictive Drums needs to be restarted once the Online Installer has installed, updated and authorized all your products.
2. DOWNLOAD & RUN ONLINE INSTALLER
Now it's time to download and run the Online Installer. Download the Mac or Windows package, extract all files and run the software inside.
3. LOGIN / CREATE USER ACCOUNT
With the Online Installer up and running you will be prompted to login or create a new user account. If you already have an XLN account, go ahead and login.
Note: You should never create dual accounts as you need all your products registered on the same account, contact our support team if you need help finding your old account information.
4. REGISTER YOUR COMPUTER
Once you're logged in you need to register your computer. Enter information about your computer along with a name for it and click the Register-button. If your computer is already registered you will automatically skip this step. If you already have your maximum amount of computers registered you will be asked to remove any old computers you are no longer using.
5. REGISTER YOUR PRODUCTS
If you have product keys that haven't been registered yet you must first register the keys before you can use the products.
If you do not own any full or free versions you will be prompted to register products automatically. Otherwise you need to click the Register Product button in top bar of the Online Installer.
6. INSTALL & UPDATE YOUR PRODUCTS
The Online Installer will show you a list of all products you own. Click the button Install & Update All on the bottom. Once the installation has finished all your products will be up to date and authorized on your computer.
7. READY TO ROCK!
Close the Online Installer down, open your host or recording software and run Addictive Drums. Now you need to create some killer tracks, but we'll leave that to you!
