Sorry, I disagree.
Useres should never have to worry about “unusual” ways of copy protection.
Without wanting to get into an argument here: I was working at a Nuendo studio recently where I wanted to setup the Euphonix. It took Steinberg Email support about 4 weeks NOT to reply to a number of emails and through both my an the studios “My Steinberg” account.
I only received an answer after I called the 0900 number, then it was a matter of minutes.
Pure annoyance of the users due to some weird kind of marketing for copy protecting a driver…
Anyways, trying to be constructive here - various uses shouting here, so obviously Steinberg has an issue to address. It should be easy to solve.
