My license file is not unlocking my plug-ins on a Mac ("Problem installing license file" or "That is not a valid license file")

This applies to the B Station and V Station plugins

If you are experiencing problems unlocking your Novation, V-Station or Bass Station plug-in on a Mac, please follow these steps:

- Ensure that you have the latest version of the plug-ins from our downloads page.
- Generate a new license file and then load it into the plug-in.

If you continue to experience problems please try the following:
- Repair disk permissions for your hard drive using disk utility. 
- Create a folder with the following path:
Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Focusrite/Activation

Now rename your license file V-Station.fnlf for the V-Station Plug-in or B-Station.fnlf for the Bass Station plug-in and place the file in Mac HD/Library/Application Support/Focusrite/Activation.

After renaming the files and placing them in the designated folder, please re-open your D.A.W. and open the plug-in.

If you still can't activate your plug-ins please contact support here.
