I have Cubase 6 on Mac OSX 10.6.8 (my “regular” version of the DAW) as well as Cubase 8 on Mac OSX 10.11.
Although I downloaded Cubase 8 a long time ago, I only initiated it recently. I was told there was no valid licence, despite it being
listed on the dongle via Control Centre. I downloaded again, activated but still had to get a fresh e-licence to run it.
Ok, got it done.
Returning to Cubase 6 saw all my UAD plugins gone, so had to reinstall, a hassle. A connection? Dunno.
But now when I re-boot from 10.6.8 to 10.11, I’m again faced with the whole “no valid licence” problem for Cubase 8.
Worse, the activation and CC maintenance both quit on me every time I try them, so now I can’t run Cubase 8 at all.
