I’m on Windows 10, just getting ready to do a clean install of windows 11. I have Cubase 12 (on one computer), sl9pro, wavelab 11, & a bunch of older versions via my elicenser
Ok…so Cubase 12…as an experiment…in case something goes wrong with my pc reinstall (not that it would)…I…for the first time…opened up activation manager and purposely deactivated cb12. Easy.
As a confirmation, I then started cb12 up…expecting it to say something like “not activated”.
But no…what actually happens is that the activation manager proceeds to…in the background…reactivate cb12.
wtf. I didn’t want that. I deactivated it for a reason.
Seems to me, that if I deactivate cb12, it should stay deactivated until/unless I purposely go into the activation manager and specifically click “activate” or reactivate or whatever.
