Unified Installer Installation Method

2 minute read • Last updated 2019-10-11

This method is only applicable if you haven't yet moved to our Annual Service Plan or if you’re using an older version of Illustrator such as CS6.

If you are on our Annual Service Plan then you will pay a one off annual fee of just $119 USD for all of the tools (with discounts available until 27 November 2019 for existing users) With greater value for money you then receive automatic access to all new updates, upgrades, added compatibility, training and support for 12 months. If you decide not to renew your plan at the end of this 12 month period, access to the plugins isn't turned off. If you haven't yet moved to the Annual Service Plan, 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 Annual Service Plan with the Astute Manager

Before you revert to older plugins using the Unified Installer, ensure that you use the Astute Manager to uninstall all Annual Service Plan 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
