I bought the boxed version of Cubase Artist 8 and loaded it onto my computer. I registered it online. After finally getting Cubase to talk nice to Mr. Gates et.al., it seems I need to ALWAYS have my eLicenser dongle plugged into a USB port or else Cubase 8 won’t even start. Is this normal?
I’ve never owned a program that needed a dongle plugged in at all times for it to run. Then again, this eLicenser thing-a-ma-bob is a complete and total mystery to me. And as usual, the “gifted” souls who wrote the instructions, don’t understand the term, “target audience.” I’m allowed to say that–being a technical writer myself .
