I’m using Cubase Pro 11 in Windows 10.
I have two “old” USB eLicensers which have some problems in communicating with my recently upgraded PC hardware. After flawlessly opening Cubase, the program very often hangs while opening a project which uses licensed VST instruments (Halion Sonic, Groove Agent), probably because the multiple accesses to the dongle cause the dongle to get “lost” by the system.
I tried all the possible fixes that came to my mind, but I could not find a permanent solution yet. I know I could simply… buy a new (third!) dongle, but that’s a “solution” I’m not going to choose unless absolutely forced, especially if I think that in a few months those Steinberg dongles will start to become obsolete.
A a slight improvement took place when, following the advice given on the eLCC download page on the Steinberg website (which by the way indirectly confirms the existence of some problems), I installed the “older” 6.11 version. So now I’d like to keep that version.
Here is my problem:
every time I launch the Download Assistant to check for available upgrades, the program immediately starts updating eLCC to its latest version. Which of course I don’t want to happen.
So the question is:
is there a way to disable that automatic eLCC check and update in Download Assistant?
Or, at least, is there a “correct” way to stop the eLCC update without closing the Download Assistant, so to be able to carry on with the other checks and downloads?
PS. I know I can wait for the eLCC setup.exe download to end and then answer NO when Windows asks me whether to allow the program to modify the system configuration, but I’d rather not have to wait every time.
