Force quitting C12 on start-up doesn't stop plug-in nags

I’d forgotten that my iLok was elsewhere, and my Waves were licensed on the studio Mac Pro when I started up Cubase 12 on my MacBook. Immediately faced with dozens of nag screens for every iLok plug in etc, I used force quit. However, the nag screens continued to pop up relentlessly and I had to cancel them all manually.

This is an annoying problem and stops me firing up C12 on a whim on the MacBook - surely a feature could be added to ignore ALL “unlicensed” - not verified, whatever, plugins on startup? It can take several minutes to cancel and close all the pop-ups.

If there is a way of doing this I’d be grateful for the knowledge!


I’m sorry, this is not possible.
