I just powered up my old Windows XP desktop, running Nuendo 3.1. After downloading 97 Windows updates, it seems to work (now under Windows XP SP3). I have a blue dongle with a red LED, which shows up in Device Manager as “Syncrosoft Protection Device”, running Syncrosoft driver 188.8.131.52 dated 11/25/2002. Here’s the LCC display:
I want to start doing audio production again, but on my shiny new Mac—but I want to use VSL Ensemble to link the Mac and PC. Now, VSL requires the more modern eLicenser software. I could just buy an extra USB eLicenser dongle, but I have too many dongles already, and I’m not sure how eLicenser would coexist with Syncrosoft LCC anyway.
So, my questions:
- Will my current dongle work with eLicenser?
- Will I be able to transfer my existing Nuendo, OpenTL, AES31 licenses to eLicenser?
- Will Nuendo 3.1 work with eLicenser on XP?
- What are the chances I lose all my licenses in the process, and can I do anything to safeguard this?
