I have Cubase ES 4 and I alos just purchsed the Cubase Stduio 5 upgrade.
Just yesterday I installed a new operating system on my PC: I went from WinXP to Win7, 64bit.
This required for me to re-install all my software.
Now I just installed Cubase ES 4 again, and I left the e-licenser dongle key in its USB port (the little red light is on).
Installation went fine, and the Snycrosoft license control center was also automatically downloaded, and when I was prompted to online register my product I chose the option ‘this product is registered already’ since I registered it back then when I first installed it on my old operating system. This is correct, isn’t it? Or do I need to register it again?
My actual question regards the license-key dongle. I was not prompted to enter the activation again, but when I open the Snycrosoft license control center program it lists my license for Cubase ES4 but it says ‘time remaining: 24 hours’.
What does that mean? Am I losing my license? Do I need to re-enter the Cubase ES4 activation code? If yes, how?
I haven’t even installed Cubase Studio 5 yet, but I want to do so, but this issue got me a bit confused.
I hope someone can help me with this.
