To take advantage of the new AAX format, you may need to upgrade your licenses. Here's what Sonnox has to say about that:

Native licences can also be crossgraded to support AAX DSP on Pro Tools HDX systems. Please click here for further information and pricing.
You will need to know your plug-in serial number and iLok.com account User ID before you can upgrade.
