I have a unique problem relating to my licenses!
My friend and ex-studio partner and I both own Cubase licenses (8 Pro). A couple of years back, I upgraded my 8 Pro to 9 Pro through direct purchase. I got the license key via email and I registered the same through eLicense Control on my computer.
Here is the problem now:
At some point, my friend and I seemed to have swapped our physical USB Licensers without realising it. We used to operate out of the same studio (and shared the USB hub) so the mix-up seems to be a result of that.
- His account with Steinberg shows a valid Cubase 9 license
- My account with Steinberg shows a valid Cubase 8 license**
While I am not facing any trouble using Cubase 9 currently with (his) licenser, I wish to upgrade to the 10 Pro during the sale Steinberg has on. I don’t want to repeat the same mistake I made the last time.
The problem lies in the fact that he and I both stay in different cities now and it is difficult for us to meet to exchange. Also, since I have already paid for the 8 to 9 upgrade, even if I do swap the licensers physically, I’ll need to upgrade from 8 to 10.
I wanted to know if there is a way we can SWAP our licenses as part of the physical transfer of licenses available when USB dongles are connected to a single computer. That way I can upgrade the 9 to 10 and work it the same way I’m working the 9 Pro right now until I meet him.
Thanks in advance!
