Unified Installer Installation Method

2 minute read • Last updated 2020-09-04

This method is only applicable if you haven't yet moved to our subscription or you're still on CS6 (which isn't compatible with the subscription). In both cases you would still be using our legacy licenses. Legacy licenses are licenses purchased before 12 September 2019. We do not sell them any more but they can be installed using a Unified Installer

If you are on the subscription then you will pay a one off annual fee of just $119 USD for all of the tools. With greater value for money you then receive automatic access to all new releases, updates, upgrades, added compatibility, training and support for 12 months. If you haven't yet moved to the subscription, you should have kept a record of your license keys for future use with the older Unified Installer installation method detailed below. If you are experiencing any issues with locating your license keys, please contact us quoting any known email addresses to which your plugin(s) are currently registered.

If you have tried the subscription with the Astute Manager

Before you revert to older plugins using the Unified Installer, ensure that you use the Astute Manager to uninstall all subscription versions of the plugins. Read how.

Installing with the Unified Installer

The below installers will install the last available versions of our plugins on Adobe Illustrator CS6 to CC2019 for both Windows 7 / 8.1 / 10 and macOS 10.10+. For older licenses please see the Legacy Installers.

Please quit Illustrator, then download and run the unified installer

Once you have run the installer, re-open Illustrator and copy your license key numbers then paste them into the activation windows for each plugin.

To open the activation windows for each plugin, you may need to open the licensing summary in Illustrator (Help > Astute Graphics > Licensing Summary) then click the Activate option next to each of the plugins that you wish to fully install.

Please note that the installers provided above are the last available Unified Installers (v1.3.6) released in August of 2019. These will allow you to install your already purchased plugins on the following:

Illustrator CS6 - CC2019
MacOS 10.10 to 10.14

Adobe Illustrator CS6 - CC2019
Windows 10 / 8.1 / 7
