Dongle not working on new computer...


I’ve been having a lot of trouble with an older computer using my old Cubase Studio 4. I’m thinking of upgrading, and so I decided to install Cubase 4 on my new laptop. From there, I plan to upgrade to 7.5 Artist.

Now for some reason, my old PC reads the dongle just fine. The e-liocenser is registered on my Steinberg account. But the new laptop doesn’t recognize it. So every time I try to boot up Cubase 4 it tells me there is no e-licenser attached. I may have missed a step, perhaps. But otherwise, any insights on this?

Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: It worked when I went to my six year-old Mac tower, which I had never tried. Is this an issue with Windows 8?

Your elicenser software is up to date?

I will give this a try and let you know what happens. Seems a likely fix.
