Last time posting on this one until I hear back from someone (Steinberg)?
I checked two moments ago, and the links were, glory be, active once again. Learning from experience I quickly opened up the detailed KB article, and shot a quick .pdf of it.
One moment later I closed it down, and went to reopen it … and once more, it was an ex-link, very parrot-like, not opening anything but the generic “empty” page (no KB Preference details at all).
I guess the Steinberg server is acting goofy, either that or all the computers and mobile devices in my house are.
I did notice there was no preference file for the MixConsole in the pages that opened up briefly … I wonder if it wasn’t the most current version of the KB article that opened up?
