iLok AND eLicenser on Same PC?

iLok AND eLicenser on Same PC?

Very many people running iLok2 dongle and eLicenser dongle on the same Win7 or greater PC without any problems?

I have (2) iLok2 dongles in my machine at all times... one for demos, and one for the purchased licenses.

I REALLY would like to be able to use the Vengeance Sound Tapestop plugin, as it appears to work like the old Serato Pitch n Time I used to use on my old Pro Tools 3 rig I used to run on a Mac clone long ago. Haven't found any other plugin quite like it. The VS Tapestop seems like a near identical work flow with additional capabilities.

But I'm highly skeptical of running two dongle protection schemes on the same machine's USB ports. Should I be? I mean... I have all kinds of other copy protection software running... NI, Waves, Sonoris, etc., with no problems. Maybe there's nothing to it?

Thanks.

I've never had an issue with it. I run Ilok, Elicenser, rainbow sentinel and codemeter on my machine without issue.

Never had an issue here either.. One iLok 2 and three eLicenser dongles working fine together on a Win 7 workstation, Mac 10.9.5 workstation, and now a Win 10 workstation.

Same here. I used the two together for about 2 years without one issue on the same usb hub....Win7 64bit on Pro Tools HD 9 and 10.

No problems here on my Win 7 slave PC. iLok 2 for my Hollywood Orchestra libraries and e-Licenser for Vienna Ensemble Pro to run them in.

Using eLicenser and iLok together for more than 4 years now. eLicenser for Cubase, iLok for plugins. Didn't had a single issue ever since.

Can't comment on iLok specifically, but for what it's worth, eLicenser and Codemeter (Reason) dongles are living and working quite happily side by side here (PC running Win7 64-bit).

Not had any issues simultaneously running eLicenser and iLok2 with Apple computers. Can't see it being an issue with Windows.

Just for the record: No issues here either on Win 7 x64, eLicenser & iLok

Actually, all copy protection schemes seem to work fine together: multiple elicensers, multiple iLoks, 2 Codemeter sticks, Waves and Plugin Alliance USB sticks, Reason Ignition key, all works fine on a mix of USB2 & USB3.
