Cubase network installation guide

Hi all

I’m running through the Cubase network installation guide V1.7.2 and in particular the disk image section (as that is what I am currently trying to build)

Following the guide, the first step is to disable the elicencer by removing C:\ProgramData\Syncrosoft\SeLicenser.sel - however, if you do this then you cant start Cubase to Set the ASIO driver and MIDI devices as mentioned as the second step.

So what do I do? Do I activate Cubase and run it to set the settings and THEN delete the SeLicenser.sel file or will this present a problem with my licence having already been activated?

Some advice please
