Dongle support dropped

If your Cubase version is licensed using the dongle will you still be able to upgrade after the dongle license support is dropped ?

Hi,

please, read the eLicenser Service Closes Down in 2025 article.

Will I be able to upgrade my eLicenser-based product to Steinberg Licensing after the end of the eLicenser service?
No, upgrading your eLicenser-based product to Steinberg Licensing after the end of the eLicenser service won’t be possible anymore.

Thank you for the rapid response.

The upgrade from anything < 12 requires the actual eLicenser server so it can upgrade your old license (and mark is as upgraded) and then transfer it over to the new system. Once the server is shut off, none of that will be possible anymore (including moving your own licenses to another dongle). Start planning now!
