eLicenser Key comes with 24 hour license?

When the boxed version of Cubase is purchased, the usb key comes with a 25 hour license (wait, is it 24?) that can run any Steinberg product.

Is this the case for Boxed Dorico purchases too?

Congrats on the release!



No, I believe the USB-eLicenser that ships with Dorico is completely empty.

Isn’t Dorico a Steinberg program?
If yes (and according to this), the 25 Hours License should be also available on the USB-eLicenser that is supplied with Dorico.

Since I’m reviving this topic, I’d like to know if a USB-eLicenser bought separately also comes with the ‘All Applications’ temporary license. From the link above it would seem that only USB-eLicensers that are supplied with a Steinberg program include this license. Is this entirely true? Or… buying a USB-eLicenser separately also include the license…

Dorico is a Steinberg program. I’ve never bought a boxed version of Dorico with a bundled USB eLicenser, so I can’t answer the second part of the question.
I have bought multiple standalone usb elicensers and can confirm that the ones I’ve purchased do not come with an all programs temporary license (or any other kind of license).

When did you buy the standalone USB-eLicensers? More than 2 years ago?

Just - most recently the 3rd of April 2019.
