I thought Cubase 12 would do a license check once a month but it happens every time on startup and I’ve had to reboot a few times now because the licenses weren’t found?
I’m seeing the same check at every start, and it’s not exactly quick.
On Mac here the same. But no problem, when I block it. This kind of checking do a lot of apps. But I have none, which stops working when blocked. But you should let it connect from time to time. I just had to authorise BFD again, because it has been offline for more than 30 days.
