I bought cubase 6.05 from ADK with my computer retail.
I just recently created a mycubase account to buy the upgrade to 7.
I bought cubase 6 fromADK but I think they upgraded the license on the elicenser to 6.5
without telling me or installing the upgrade because 6.5 was out before they built the computer.
My cubase was still 6.05 and having never upgraded I didn’t think much of the 6.5 listed there, I was running 6
so thats the upgrade I bought.
So I bought the upgrade from 6 to 7, as a CD like an idiot. (great documentation!).
It won’t verify the registration code. This because it thinks I have 6.5 and not the 6.0 upgrade I bought.
Why wouldn’t install an overvalued upgrade anyway, overcharging me $50bux instead of the $200 I have ultimately
overpaid. (to get this done in a hurry that is)
In addition Cubase 7 32 bit crashed, after the initial windows it says program failed to operate.
Cubase 7 64 bit works quite well.
This dongle system is idiotic. Why did my elicenser change from 6 to 6.5? Now the only way to get to work tonight
is to actually see if the 6.5 upgrades install (all 4 or 5 of them) and then repurchase an online upgrade from 6.5 to 7.0
I would actually do this because I have clients waiting but I bought the soft license for the mp3 program and it fails to recognize the license, which I have in a printed receipt.
Steinberg, you don’t need this dongle, its hurting your users. Nobody who is serious pirate DAWs just kids. LIve, sonar, all get by without it.
You’ve cost me $100s in session work this weekend. Get over yourselves and drop the dongle or make sure it always works.
It wasn’t me who told the elicenser I had cubase 6.5 because I never bought that version, I bought 6.05. When I registered the dongle it upgraded that to 6.5. I didn’t notice, why would it do that?
So i bought an upgrade from 6.
And why would it refuse a more comprehensive upgrade???
You and your little dongle company get your act together please. This is no way to run a professional company. Treating your users like children.
No serious users pirate DAWs. Register my HD serial number if you are that paranoid, but this dongle BS is undignified.
Yah I’m upset, I feel I have every right to be. You have taken my money and wasted my time.
WHat are my options here at this time of night? I’m going to have to buy a 6.5 to 7 upgrade and hope that works.
But why would it when my mp3 purchase wouldn’t register? And when cubase 7 32 bit is crashing while the 64 bit version loads.
How do you users put up with this? Every upgrade? I really need a stable 64 bit app so I will put up with this but it doesn’t seem right or honorable business practice.
