A question about purchasing a USB dongle…
The attached link lists the differences between the (current) 4 versions of the USB eLicenser. It says that you will always receive the latest version of the eLicense dongle when purchased from the Steinberg Shop and that new USB eLicense dongles are available from other Steinberg retailers.
My question is asked due to a recent conversation I had with Musician’s Friend customer support. There is no assurance that you will receive the latest USB eLicenser dongle when purchasing from them (and I will guess, other retailers). From MF, if not satisfied, you could return the item but, who needs the hassle.
Question) Is there something like a UPC code (or item number) that differentiates the newest version of the USB dongle from the old ones? If yes, please reply what these codes are as I’d like to specify the code (or item #) if I purchase from a Steinberg retailer. Thank you
