Hi, just downloaded the HS2 trial and installed, when launching, I am told I need to activate that trial. However, I have not received any trial activation code by mail. How do I go about this?
(I am prepared to take advantage of the valentines day offer, but it says “license to transfrom trial version into permanent” or samething to that effect. So I may be stumped if upon entering the permanent activation key, i would be told “no valid trial license found”)
I think the original question–which is a question I’ve been trying to get answered also all afternoon, is how do you activate the demo? No activation code came with the download and installing the demo didn’t automatically place an activation on my elicenser dongles. I’d love an answer to this. Want to try it over the weekend as well.
I didnt have to activate halion sonic 2 trial, no activation code fo me either, it just says its available for so many hours until it becomes unusable, then you would have to buy and enter the code when bought in the elicencer to continue using.
Back to the original question about activating the HS2.
What I did was the following:
1: Buy the discounted HS license on steinberg.net (Steinberg grace period gave me the HS2 license automaticaly)
2: Install the license to my e-licenser USB key
3: Install HS2
4: Run HS2
I was never asked for any trial license or nothing else.
Worked like a dream.
I’m afraid that some of these answers are missing the point. THere are a number of us who want to try this in “trial” mode before deciding whether to buy. It appears that many of us have no way of activating the product in trial mode. THis is getting frustrating, since time is running out.
If you have a boxed C6 you might have authorization codes and DVDs/CDs for various trials. If you just have C7, you can download trials but use the trial codes that came with the boxed C7. I loaded yesterday from the discs, activated with the trial codes, purchased the Valentine’s activations, got an email with new codes, and entered them into my eLicensor. Works. I hope that does for you.
Thanks, Tifo, but I boutght C6 as a download upgrade (I’m a long-time Cubase user. Haven’t gotten around to C7.5 yet) and no free trial codes with the upgrade. I’m probably just going to buy the thing–it has so many features that its hard to imagine going too wrong for $100, but it is wierd and frustrating to not be able to use the demo after downloading and installing it.
