I currently I use Cubase and Dorico products.
I heard and read about the new licensing scheme, but I am a little bit worried about that.
If I use offline i have to after X days to reactivate. What happen if I don’t want to upgrade the Cubase 12 version in the future and i want to use my old system just for one goal and it pass 10 years. What is the guarantee that version can use even if the Steinberg activation/license schema wont be anymore support that (because they will be change the technology as they did now)?
Will I get a generic serial number? Because when i bought the product that’s permanent. With the USB e-licenser i could use it because that’s mine till now.
One of big advantages was with the USB e-licenser the software (Cubase, Dorico) weren’t depend on online licensing. That was your the software and now I don’t feel any guarantee that software i will be able to use forever. The latest Windows Xp, Vista, 7 etc. product is not support anymore online digital activation, but i have options to buy a retail serial number and i can install even if the hardware doesn’t support i can use in VM which they are able to communicate the guest system with the hardware directly (1-2ms).
So the question is: What is the guarantee that version (Cubase 12) i can use even if the Steinberg activation/license schema wont be anymore support over next (for instance: 10 years)?
