Lack of valid license for HALion 6


I upgraded to Dorico and did an install all. I am now very puzzled as to why on starting a new project (and usually after adding one instrument and before adding a second) that I get a warning saying I don’t have a valid license for HALion 6.

Is there anything I should have done before or after did the upgrade?

all help appreciated.

Stephen, HAL6 needs a license on eLC, to be used…

Thanks - daft question… I thought version 4 onwards had abandoned eLicense Control . However - where do I find eLC? How do I check what I’m using? The upgrade to 4.3.30 came with HALion 7.0?

original post shows error message and eLC… am I missing soething

Stephen, actually I didn’t understand why a new project asks for HALion 6… I presumed you had some HALion 6 instrument, or perhaps it wasn’t HALion 6… Before Dorico4, Dorico used HALion Sonic SE 3.

Dorico 4 can (and prefer to) use HALion Sonic 7 (not HALion 7, which is a sampler). You can download it from SDA.

Stephen, try going to the Play page of Preferences in Dorico and explicitly set Dorico to use HALion Sonic. That should stop it from trying to load full HALion.

Thanks Daniel - your suggestion works!
