Steinberg Activation Manager "Sign In" button not working

Trying to sign in to SAM but pressing the “Sign In” button does not open browser (Chrome)

  • have tried Edge and Explorer browsers
  • I’ve allowed SAM app through Firewall
  • I’ve set Chrome to allow pop-ups and redirects (not sure if this has anything to do with it)

Can you please help me fix this? Thanks.

Same exact problem. I recently purchased Cubase 12 Pro and downloaded all the software directly so that I could avoid running faulty Steinberg Download Assistant (which has the same problem, namely, a useless sign-in button) and now the activation manager is messed up and I’m stuck with four hours wasted on troubleshooting, 600 dollars gone, and no software activation.

Which version of Windows are you using?

Windows 8.1

I’m using Windows 10

Cubase 12 requires 64-bit Windows 10 Version 21H2 (or higher), 64-bit Windows 11 Version 21H2 (or higher)

Which build of Windows 10? Is it 64-bit Windows 10 Version 21H2 (or higher), 64-bit Windows 11 Version 21H2 (or higher)

64-bit Windows 10 21H2 is the build of my computer so I’m not sure why it’s having issues
