Hi all, getting increasingly frustrated with the way today is going. The first 4 hours of failure I could handle, I stuck with it and kept trying to find a solution…but my patience is wearing thin.
Following the advice of several posts in this forum, I located and downloaded Cubase SX3.1 so I can convert my legacy Cubase VST5 .SNG and .ARR files into .CPR files for CA6.5
So far I have been unsuccessful. Once installed, SX will not launch due to the eLCC not verifying a valid license, despite the popular notion that current licenses being valid for earlier versions.
Following the advice of another post, I uninstalled eLCC and retrograded to the version that shipped with SX3.1
Of course this failed and LCC5 has no knowledge of CA6.5 and will not recognize the license.
Next I tried eLCC 6.0.4 this being the earliest archive of the eLCC available, again following the advice elsewhere in this forum. SX still failed to launch.
So I uninstalled LCC5 and SX3.1 and went back to eLCC 6.5, the most recent version, and installed SX3.1 again. This caused a new set of errors from eLCC, the Syncrosoft libraries are missing.
Now however, I get errors running the eLCC maintenance script. The process keeps timing out and failing to update the database. I’m not sure how critical this is but it makes me wonder what is going on. CA6.5 launches and runs just fine so it has not affected anything there, yet.
But the problem trying to get SX to run so I can migrate my VST5 songs over to OSX persists. Can anyone shed any light with a reliable method to achieve this?
