Hi all. I am a one time music technology student who purchased Cubase Studio 5 student edition whilst I was a student approx 10 years ago so I could do work from home. For some reason I never actually activated the licence whilst I was a student and never used up the temporary licence. Once I finished my 3 year course I went straight into working in a different industry I’ve been in ever since, and have just decided to get back into this stuff and have the discs and security key dongle right here with me, the problem is I no longer use any desktop or laptop and have microsoft Surface Pro tablet (with no cd drive) and also an unactivated dongle for student software whilst I’m no longer a student.
Is there any way for me to install the software and activate the licence legally, or will I have to buy it again (newer version)?
