To try and get Cubase Pro 11 to accept a continious lisence I decided as mentioned erlier allow all services including the services one would restrict to maintain security.
In this condition the O/S is completely compromised allowing any hackers or 3rd party to steal ones codes, data or prior music projects!
The eLisence was still not able to load the continious lisence I paid £300 for.
After initial music history I worked in IT for over 30+ years now and hold a BSC(Hons)MSC in IT and HND in electonics designing micro embedded systems which has included analogue/digital audio over many years.
This problem of eKey authentication is clearly with the Cubase server not being enabled thus allowing loading of the correct lisense key . Clearly
the failing of Stienburg alone.
I will confirm this 100% later following trace files a few tools and packet capture.
I can only conclude from this initial experiance Stienburg have absolutely no duty of care or accept any responcability toward thier end users.
Appart for you pay that is.
Now after 7 days and still not even recieving a reply to any service requests I believe this alone reinforces the poor disregard Stienburg hold towards it’s customers.
I recently tried to install Melodyne 5 and thier servers are set to permantly removed the windows firewall and also the ability to replace the firewall by blocking the security template and blocking the thread that installs the windows firewall within the O/S. Caught them out !
I made it quite plain to Celemony thier product sales would plumit rapidly If I placed this issue in the wild and within the music comunity.
In a simular manner I wonder how Stienburg would feel if provided continious posts on social meda about this issue and thier poor support and dismissive attitude towards thier users.
Cubase Pro 11 that you cant obtain the full elisence to use once purchased on or off line. I recognise thier need to secure thier product but this is redicilous.
Even if they need to check my prior subscription to Pro Tools 11 and that itself would take a while, they could at least have the respect to e-mail the user to notify the client that this is thier due process.
I am beginning to believe I have made a big mistake attempting to cross grade Cubase 11 and it appears the inherent problems associated with Avid and Pro Tools now appears to have migrated right through the whole company to Cuebase.
I thank you for your kind support and kindness as a fourm, but these issues are clearly the failure of Stienburg alone including the eLisence software blame game.
It’s Difficult as I purchased a box set but I will now start pushing for a full refund and walk away.
Cubase isn’t the experiance what is advertised … !!
