Vst Connect Pro works without a license

Dear Developers, In both Nuendo 8 and Nuendo 10, Vst Connect Pro was released and worked without purchase. We worked a lot like that…
But I bought the plugin, I just ask, what could be the reason? Maybe the “24 hour license” on the e-license? (It always remained the same value, 24:53:43 sec)
Sorry if the English is incorrect

… strange?! Can you please send me a screenshot of your licenses? Open the “License Control Center” app that for. Send it to m.spork (at) steinberg.de

Thank you,

I won’t be home for a couple of weeks now, I can’t send until then, I don’t have the key. But I’ve heard that from others. If used with a key that has a 24-hour count, it does not ask for a trial version code, but can be used without it. For me, Nuendo 8 already included VST Connect Pro when it was installed.
