I got caught out yesterday using C8.03 on location on the MacBook Pro, in a way which I hadn’t expected, so this might help someone.
I put C8.5 on the studio Mac, but as I had a location recording coming up the next day decided not to risk a new update on the MacBook. Of course I use the same ELc dongle for both installations of Cubase.
What I didn’t expect was that the ELc controller on the MacBook would not recognise the new C8.5 licence, and refuse to load C8.03 on the Macbook. So even though I had sensibly decided not to update ahead of a session, I got caught by the update anyway. I got “Unknown Sternberg License”.
Of course, I should have checked everything was working before the location setting, but I didn’t, so there’s another good lesson.
