I’m planning on replacing my Windows boot drive (SSD) with a higher-capacity one (by cloning it).
According to the Steinberg web page on this topic, the new licensing system records certain information about the hardware it is running on, so I wonder whether I will run into any issues after that hardware upgrade?
Just to be in the safe side, you could deactivate the license before replacing the drive and re-activate it again afterwards.
Ah, good idea, thank you!
I cloned my drive with Samsung Magician and had zero issues with anything Steinberg , when booted the M2 drive Cubase ,WL,SL, Halion and GA all fired up without having to reactivate.
You can deactivate via the SAM for the old drive anyway .
That’s comforting, thanks!
Yep , even the other drives with projects and content worked perfectly
Same here, just updated my system drive and used Samsung Magician for cloning.
Other VST(i)'s had to be reauthorized …
Ah, right, hopefully none of my various VSTs will give me any troubles…
