Will my dongle still be functional?

My iMac is old and can only go to High Sierra. If I keep using the current version of Cubase 11 after Steinberg switches to software activation will my dongle still work if I do not upgrade my Steinberg products to newer versions?

See New Steinberg Licensing FAQ | Steinberg

Can I continue using my eLicensers?

Yes. The eLicenser system will be maintained and run for some time to come, at least until such time as all actively-maintained Steinberg products have been transitioned to the new Steinberg Licensing system. Even after the eLicenser server is eventually decommissioned, further still into the future, existing USB-eLicensers will continue to work for as long as they remain functional and you are still able to run the corresponding software versions on your computer.

However, if you want to take advantage of the new features and improvements that will be introduced in major updates to Steinberg software, when you update to a new version using Steinberg Licensing, you will not have the option of using your eLicenser for that version of that product.

Thanks for the clarification Steve.
