Activation of Cubase 12 on [permanently] offline computer

I am contemplating upgrading from Cubase 11 Pro. But I have a concern. I am aware that once we have activated a computer on Cubase 12, we are not required to reconnect to the internet for refreshing. However, in my case, my main console has no connection to the internet at all; nor do I intend to attempt to connect it.

Does Steinberg have any means of allowing me to activate Cubase 12 on an offline computer? I have worked around this predicament in the past by using a dongle.


Yes, it’s possible. On the offline computer generate the license request file. Transfer the file to the online computer. Generate the license file out of the request file. Transfer the license file to the offline computer.

Thank you, sir!
