Urgent Help please
I have been arsing about all day trying to get this sorted but just can't manage it! I have been trying to sort out the 1.5.1 update but just can't manage it. I can't even work under the 'non licesen key' mode as it seems PH don't recognise my login details even though i am already logged in. I have a client coming over tomorrow and I wanted to show him Reason to see if he use it in his show/tour. Is there anyone out there willing to help me? I just can't get the new update to recognise my ignition key.

Sorry for the winge but I have totally wasted a whole day trying to sort this.

Let's start with the basics. You're talking about 1.5.1, meaning Record 1.5.1, yes?

I assume you're trying to use it with Reason 5.x, right? Reason 6.x contains the functionality of both so you neither need Record, nor can you use them together.

If those first assumptions are good, we can proceed. What's it doing when you try to run it?

Hi, thanks for helping. I have Reaosn Essentials. It came boxed up with V1.0 whic worked fine. I went to try the update to V1.5.1 I downloaded the update and I am now runnig V1.5.1 but it when I try and open using Register and authorize I get the following: 'Registerd' and then a promt to 'write licesne'. Whe I hit this I get a new Manage Licesne number with an error message saying 'There is no Propellerhead Ignition Key connected to your computer right now.' but there is? I can't seem to get past there? Any ideas?

Sounds like you do have a 1.5 license on your account - but goto 'your account' and make sure you have the 1.5 license - if not, click the 'get my free upgrade' to add that license to your account.

also, quickly go to the store - today, and click 'buy' on pulsar - the free offer ends today.

Did you uninstall 1.0.x before the 1.5.1 install? you might have an issue that an older version of authorizer is running - make sure you have authorizer 2.x and not 1.x.

if authorizer version is correct it might be browser session related...

try opening the browser and logging out of props site

then close reason, all browsers, and unplug ignition key

open browser, and clear cache, delete cookies and temp files

plug in ignition key, open browser, login to your account

click manage licenses - see if it now detects the ignition key.

Hi, I think V5 overwrites V1 so I don't think there is a clash there? I tried the log off thing and still get the same problem. You say "make sure you have authorizer 2.x and not 1.x.". How do I check this? There is a section in FAQ item called ' How to make sure your Authorizer is OK' but I can't seem to get to the relevant page? When ever I hit the 'Ignition Key Info' button mI just get my orginal error message saying my license key is not present?

on a pc - depending on os version - in control panel, select the option where you can see the list of installed apps to restore/remove/uninstall...

you should see authorizer listed - only once - with the version number -- i.e., I see "Authorizer 2.0".

and yes, installing 1.5 should overwrite 1.0, but... When I upgraded from R6 to R6.5 the old authorized didn't uninstall (actually, i think it was a result of having been a beat tester, i'm not sure).
