Is it true users will need to have a USB dongle to upgrade c8 Elements to c12 Artist?
If users don’t have a dongle when attempting to upgrade Elements they receive the error message:
"The license upgrade you are about to perform will work only for licenses which reside on a USB-Licenser. Currently, the license you want to upgrade resides on your computer’s Soft-elicenser. Please transfer the license you want to upgrade from the Soft-eLicenser to a USB-eLicenser by cancelling the license activation process (click ‘Cancel License Activation’) and starting Licenser Control Center from the ‘Applications’ folder, then using drag-n-drop to transfer the license from the Soft-eLicenser to the USB-eLicenser.”
So due to the way Steinberg has coded the upgrade process from the old license system to the new, pre-c12 Elements users will need to purchase a USB dongle to upgrade c8 Elements to c12 artist if they don’t have a dongle? Is that correct?
Thanks in advance for any answers
