Big News wednesday 👍

Dorico 4 now with “Save As Project Template”, that is also a very useful thing…!


Binge-watched the videos, and I’m very impressed so far! Looking forward to trying it out!

I downloaded Dorico 4 from the SDA but it asks me for registration and so on… License Not Found, while the program is showing Audio Engine: waiting for connection… the program stuck here :-/

Have you bought your Dorico 4 update, received your Download Access Code, and redeemed it in Steinberg Download Assistant? Dorico 4 is not a free update.


No problem with the upgrade purchase Dan, but can’t find the link where to buy the upgrade.

Look in the main pinned thread at the top of the forum!

Tomorrow…Tomorrow… Tomorrow… Tomorrow tomorrow I will be able to update … tomorrow … courage, tomorrow is close …

Congrats to the team for the great upgrade!

Unfortunately I am stuck upgrading because I can’t connect to the server stage DOT steinberg DOT net :frowning:

I purchased Dorico 3.5 during the grace period, and I am trying to upgrade to 4 by following the instructions in the blog post.

I’ve problem from switching from 3.5 SE to 4 SE. Have got SE 4 key to my e-mail, unstalled SE 4 version, the license is visible in new Activation Manager, but when I start Dorico, it runs Pro 4 version and can’t find pro license of course. Could you tell me, what should I do?

Our eLicenser team are working to resolve this issue right now. Please wait an hour (if you can!) and try again.

Can you show me a quick screengrab of Steinberg Activation Manager on your system? I hope it will show only a single item, Dorico SE, and that it is Activated.

Very interesting! Could you please zip up the folder Activation Manager in %APPDATA%\Steinberg and send it to me by email at d dot spreadbury at steinberg dot de, and I’ll ask my colleagues to take a look?

Done! Glad with this major upgrade wow!

Have sent one. Please, check if it’s delivered

Yup, got it. We’re looking into it.

I chose poorly… Wanted to wait for the release of D4 before ordering crossgrade, and now I have to wait for another eligibilty verification (I guess my approval was reset with the new edish).

The verification will take place within TWO business days :scream:

Edit: Already verified. License aquired.

I bought Dorico Pro 3.5 (update from 3) in the November 2020 offers. I activated it on September 1, 2021, taking advantage of the grace period. Now I am trying to update to 4 (running maintenance on eLicenser, updated), but I am not getting any prompts to be able to update. It is normal?

If you bought long before last summer but then activated between August 25 and September 20, then you’re in a kind of limbo state. Please send me an email with your order receipt to d dot spreadbury at steinberg dot de and I’ll take care of you.

Done! Email sended. Thanks! :slight_smile:
