Having installed C12 Pro (in cohabitation with C11 Pro and C7.5 32bit, which I need for older projects) and the bonus Amped Elektra, I discovered that the latter needs (at least for now) the USB eLicenser.
So I thought that to work with C12 without the dongle (which I want to connect only when actually needed, so as to preserve its… health as long as possible) it was enough to avoid using, inside C12, Amped Elektra (or any projects involving Amped Elektra).
Instead I discovered that C12, during every startup (before loading any projects), also checks Amped Elektra’s license and, not finding it, emits an error dialog.
I know I could “solve” this by removing AE, but that would prevent me from using it also when I connect the dongle to work with C11.
So my question is:
is there a way to have C12 simply ignore Amped Elektra, despite it being installed in the system?
Moreover, I saw just yesterday, for the very first time in all my Cubase years, a weird behaviour when trying to save a new C12 project, just created and almost empty (two MIDI tracks with a bunch of notes each); as soon as I pressed CTRL+S I got an error message saying:
“The Project could not be saved because: The project is corrupt! No new project could be created.”
Maybe it was just a coincidence (which brings some apprehension about C12), but a doubt obviously came spontaneously: could this be somehow related to the “missing” AE license?
