I just spent 30 hours installing Cubase 7 and 7.5 to find out that they are not compatible with Windows 10. See? http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=181&t=87710&p=493409#p493409
I have no choice but to spend $100 and buy and Install Cubase 8. I am however concerned that I will again spend many hours troubleshooting. I am exhausted with the Cubase 7 debacle.
I want to make sure ahead of time I will not find myself in a similar situation with Cubase 8. I am concerned that the issues I had insulting 7/7.5 will not go away with getting Cubase 8 to install, register and working properly. Here are the issues I had:
My name or my license number does not appear anywhere what I open Cubase. Is this typical?
Will I get this message: “soft eLicenser doesn’t have enough permissions to run properly.
Please run LCC to fix this problem.”
When “register now” in Cubase will I get error code 1003.
Yes Online Sync and Maintenance all items are OK
I have the eLicenser Control Center Version 220.127.116.119
The dongle is plugged in.
A few more Questions:
Does Cubase 7 and 7.5 need to be installed to upgrade to Cubase 8? I prefer to uninstall them and get then out of the way.
Will Padshop Pro work in Windows 10. I cannot recall that Padshop Pro is a separate purchase and installation.
