Nuendo 13 grace period eligibility

I purchased Nuendo 12 on September, redeemed Download Access Code shortly afterwards, but for some reasons I have never activated the license nor used it until today. I wonder whether I am eligible for grace period as it states “Customers who have activated Nuendo 12 or earlier versions from October 18, 2023, are eligible for a free, downloadable grace period update to the latest version.”, or not.

It looks like solutions in this page do not apply to my case, as Nuendo 12 is not elicenser based.

Redeeming the DAC converted your licence entitlement into a licence. Taking that step might prevent you from getting a grace period update to Nuendo 13. However, it is still possible as you have not activated any computers. Check in the Vouchers section of My Steinberg to see if you have a Nuendo 13 update voucher.

If you had not redeemed the DAC, your DAC would have been redeemed as Nuendo 13.

It does, though. Please have another look at the page.
