Thanks Conman, Cubase 6 is all okay, it is the right version, it works fine, I double checked that it is actually 6.0.0, and thats confirmed. Not only have I licensed the dongle, which one must do to get the software to work, but I have also registered my install with Steinberg, after registering I checked back later that my registration is in their system and it is clearly displayed as Cubase 6 in my registered software list.
The problem I have is I cannot update to either of the published 6.0.3 or 6.0.4 updates, after downloading the update file from Steinberg (I have tried both), I don’t even get to choose any options, I launch the update file and the first thing that happens is it reports that Cubase 6 is not found.
I have a Mac Pro 2.8GHz Quad Core with 2G of ram and OSX 10.6. the OSX and Cubase install was a clean one, I reformatted my boot drive, installed Cubase 4 from the original disk, I then upgraded to 4.5 as I previously had running, and checked that it was all functional and can still access and play previously recorded projects, that all worked. Only after I confirmed I was back to a fully operational state, did I then attempt to update to Cubase 6, I purchased the Cubase 4/5 update to 6 package.
I’ve had no response from Steinberg yet through this post/forum, can anyone advise how I can get Steinberg to consider and comment on this problem as I dont necessarily want to be stuck with 6.0.0 forever. The direction given by Steinberg on this forum on how this is escalated to a bug level suggests that others need to report the same, I suppose eliminating a possible isolated related issue that I may have. I am sure I have gone through all the motions in the right order, followed install instructions to the letter.
Now what do I do, I am stuck perpetually with 6.0.0 and its bugs, can anyone advise how I should go about getting Steinberg to consider and look at my problem?
