Hi all (I’m using Windows 11)
I have opened Cubase 7.5 to continue work on an older project and I get a message telling me that there is no licence for Padshop. I guess this is because I installed the Cubase 12 trial which has now expired and I’m seeing a Padshop 2 VST even though the project was using Padshop Pro originally (which is still installed and licenced via the elicencer).
So if I uninstall Cubase 12 Trial (via “Add/Remove programs”) will it revert to my original licenced Padshop Pro without demanding a licence for Padshop 2?
EDIT: I can see Padshop 2 in add/remove programs but am concerned it may remove my Padshop Pro installation (which is NOT listed in add/remove programs).
I left Cubase 12 on the PC assuming that it wouldn’t interfere with my Cubase 7.5 installation or VSTs. I can’t see a way of removing Cubase 12 Trial in the activation manager or via any of the other Steinberg bloatware programs.
I’ve already lost a couple of hours of work time due to this and am slowly losing the will to live
Thanks for any help.
UPDATE: It appears that installing the Cubase 12 trial OVERWRITES your older Steinberg VST instruments so if you decide not to upgrade and remove Cubase 12 then your Steinberg VSTs will not work without a valid licence. I’ve had to reinstall PadShop Pro and Retrologue.
I think I may have to go back to ProTools. I’m losing the plot with Steinberg.
