Native won't work without internet? 😱

Recommended Posts

I have been checking Native free trial and noticed that it doesn't work unless I am connected to the internet.

 

Is this normal? Surely if you pay for it you should be able to use it in places that has no internet.

The free trial requires you to be connected every time you use it, the licenced version requires that you are connected only the first time to verify the licence and register the computer - after that there is no requirement for it to be connected.

But: In any case an activated network adapter (LAN card, whatever) is needed ;)

Sorry I don't understand. What do you mean by saying "activated Network adapter".

 

The trial software has been activated but if I activate Flight Mode on my laptop, Native won't work.

 

I have 2 days left to test it and I'm doubtful if to purchase it because of the restriction.

Ah! Now I get it! In that case I will purchase it. Hopefully Line 6 will update it with the same features as the Helix soon. I love the Snapshots.

 

Some how I didn't see your post and replied to the next one.

Helix Native requires an internet connection to initially authorize the license both for the demo and full versions. Once the license has been authorized, you no longer need an internet connection to use the software. But, because of how the authorization works, you do need an NIC (Network Interface Controller) enabled. Do not disable your network card (wireless or LAN) when running Helix Native. If you want run without an internet connection, just unplug your LAN cable or disconnect from your WiFi network.

Seems as if Helix Native needs the so called MAC address / ID

So is there any way you can authorise an offline computer? Most C/R type software allows some copying of codes between an offline machine in a studio and another computer with an active connection.
