This procedure assumes that you already have registered and have an Image-Line Account  and you have downloaded and installed the  relevant product/s . This procedure will unlock  ALL your products with one FLRegkey.Reg file. When you buy  additional  products you will need to repeat this process. 



If your browser doesn't ask where to save the file, please follow these additional steps once the file has been downloaded:

  1. Locate the FLRegKey.reg on your hard disk in Finder. By default, most applications download to the Downloads folder.
  2. Open a new Finder window and open the folder 'Library/Preferences/Image-Line' in your user folder. For example, if your user account is called "Steve", then save the file here: '/Users/Steve/Library/Preferences/Image-Line/FLRegkey.Reg'.


Note: If an Image-Line folder is not available you must manually create the folder in the Preferences folder and drag the file FLRegKey.reg into to the 'Image-Line' folder.

How do I navigate to the Preferences folder in macOS 10.7 and higher?

In macOS 10.7 or 10.8 the Library folder is not displayed in the Finder anymore. To navigate to the Preferences folder please follow these steps:

  •     Open the Finder
  •     Go to the Menu Bar and open the "Go" menu.
  •     Select the entry: "Go to Folder..."
  •     Enter the path of the Preferences Folder: ~/Library/Preferences

Tip: You can display the Library folder if you press the ALT-Key while in the "Go" menu.
ALSO IMPORTANT please note that these steps will only work for unlocking Image-Line plugins that you own a standalone license for. FL Studio licenses do not include access to the VST, AU, and standalone versions of plugins, these are separate purchases available from our online shop.
