• Follow the instructions there, enter you new SeL number.
• For Sequel also enter the activation code from the card “Essential Product License Information” or the last used activation code you can find in MySteinberg.
• Now click on “Request new Activation Code”
• Repeat the procedure for each additional product
In “Show registered products” -> “Activation codes received online” those requested activation codes are listed. You will also receive an email with an activation code for each reactivation you have started. Use the eLicenser Control Center and use the “Enter Activation Code” button to download the product license onto your SeL.
Store your license on an USB-eLicenser
You can transfer your license on to the USB- eLicenser or download it directly to this USB device.
The USB -eLicenser makes your product license portable so you can install the product anywhere you like. Once you connect the USB- eLicenser the license will be detected and the product will run.
Also if you change your harddisc and the hardware configuration changes your license will remain untouched and stable on the USB- eLicenser. The USB- eLicenser can be purchased here:
