Suddenly PT won't load Plug-Ins because not valid 64-bit


1.Suddenly on booting up a session I had a AAE 7058 unauthorised plugin error.

2. I just used TimeMachine and rolled back 2 days before the problem started.


I have a few plug-ins that won’t load because “they aren’t valid 64bit” ?

The only thing that’s changed is I upgraded my iPhone to iSO13* 

  • iMac 2018
  • OS 10.12.6 ,
  • Pro Tools 12.7.1, 12.8.3, PT 2018, PT 2019.6.0

Fix on Sierra:

  1. Re-installing iLok License Manager (Download the latest version)
  2. Install available updates in App Store (updates available related to iTunes)
  3. Upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra and the problem magically goes away

Fix on Mojave:

  1. Re-installing iLok License Manager (Download the latest version)
  2. Launch the Terminal (from Applications > Utilities), and then copy and paste this command and press Return: tmutil listlocalsnapshots /
  3. The Terminal will show a list of local snapshots with names like:
  4. To remove a snapshot:
  5. Copy and paste this command: sudo tmutil deletelocalsnapshots
  6. Type a space and then paste in the date portion of the snapshot.
  7. Press Return, and finally press Return.
  8. Altogether, using the example snapshot above, that looks like: sudo tmutil deletelocalsnapshots 2018-03-01-002010
  9. If it deletes properly, you’ll see Delete local snapshot ‘2018-03-01-002010‘ in the Terminal as the response.
  10. Open iLok License Manager
  11. Deactivate Babelson Audio plug-in( or what else )
  12. Start Pro Tools
  13. Reactivate all Babelson Audio plug-ins
  14. Bingo! That’s it…
