My MBR got corrupted. I have had to reinstall my windows 7 OS and all the software. Including Cubase Elements. I knew it was going to be a nightmare, because installing Cubase was a nightmare even the first time. I now have not unexpected situation of the e-licencer telling me that my Cubase Elements has already been registered and authorised - which, of course it has - and now I cannot authorise for use on the same machine that it was installed on before the MBR corruption.
I do get software licensing, I really do, but for crying out loud Steinberg, your system is so staggeringly frustrating it needs to be binned and started again from scratch.
In the meantime, does anyone know how in heaven’s name I can get my well earned cash spent on this Steinberg product to mean something again? How can can I get the reinstallation to authorise? Yes I have searched ‘license’ ‘licence’ ‘e-licencer’ and ‘e-licenser’ and come up blank. I have also bought some adds ons, and I bet I can’t get them to authorise either.
I need a drink. This is the most frustrating software ever.
