I downloaded the trial version.
I received the author code in my email.
I opened ELicenser Control Center and with my USB stick in, I cut and paste the activation code . It then has the activation code and below it says Halion 4.x Trial. I clicked enter and then I got a message
Cureently there is no eLicenser connected to your comptuer which you can download your license to.
However the stick is connected, and see Cubase 5, Wavelab 7, and Halion Sonic all listed under Licenses. All of these programs also will open up and work.
Found the customer service pages on steinberg’s web site clunky and I was unable to find the right area to get help. No phone number is available in the STates anymore to get assistance. Any ideas what I need to do?
