As of September 25, 2023, offline authorization for Reason 11 and earlier has been deprecated. The system of offline authorization in use was based on technology that had simply passed its due date. In order to create a better system of offline authorization, we needed to remove reliances on legacy components that might otherwise hold us back.
Offline authorizations created before September 25th 2023 will continue to function indefinitely, for as long as your system remains in its current state. Existing offline authorizations can no longer be upgraded though, and Rack Extensions purchased after September 25th 2023 cannot be added to an existing offline authorization. If you buy a new computer, reinstall your OS, or make changes to your computer hardware, your offline authorization may become unusable.
Please note, though, that online authorization is still available for Reason 8 and later.
We will not be able to provide support for offline authorization-related problems for Reason 11 or earlier after September 25, 2023.
A completely new offline authorization system is included in Reason 12. Update to Reason 12.6 or later to use Reason 12 without internet connection. Please, read this article for more information about the new offline authorization system in Reason 12.6.
