Okay, I know that N3 is like from the stone age, but I was one of the few people around here for which N5/N5.5 never worked all that well - too many session-stopping bugs for me, and I had skipped N4. So I’ve been working mostly in N3 and still have many projects to finish up, and I feel too lost on N6 to work well or quickly.
I’ve got N6 installed as a 32bit on Win7 64, and it seems to be working fine. I then tried installing N3 but it was a complete no go. I have the newest eLicenser driver installed. It was the exact same issue as this Cubase user encountered here: http://www.steinberg.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=48895
Their fix was to rollback the eLicenser to ver 5.4.20.01010 - which is no longer available in the archives (only 220.127.116.1136 from August 2010 is available)- install Cubase SX3 - then reinstall the current eLicenser.
Does anyone have an opinion on this? Messing with the eLicenser sounds like VERY scary stuff to me and I am very reluctant to do it. I’m afraid that I’ll wind up with a machine that won’t run ANY version of Nuendo, and I can’t afford any down time right now.
As it stands, I can use N3 by rolling my machine back to XP/N3 from a disc image - I was on XP before upgrading to Win7 and N6 at the same time - but as you know, XP won’t allow N6. I would really love to have both versions on one machine so that I can use N3 as I learn N6.
Any input would be appreciated.
