I very much would like to upgrade to Cubase 6 from SX3, mainly for it’s enhanced ability to detect beats from freely played audio. But, if I have to upgrade to XP Net frame 3.5 in order to run C6 on my music computer, and if it turns out the computer has software/hardware incompatible with Net frame 3.5, I guess I won’t be able to buy Cubase 6 until I can afford a new computer
By way of background: My USB-eLicenser has been upgraded successfully on an internet computer running XP net frame 3.5, and that USB-eLicenser is working very nicely to let me run Cubase SX3 on my XP computer (non-internet connected), which only has Net frame 1.1.x installed.
So, I have two questions I’m wondering if anyone can help with:
Does anyone have an idea if C6 will run on an XP machine that has Net frame 1.1.x on it (of course with a fully updated USB-eLicenser)? I understand XP is not officially supported by C6, but I know a lot of people are running it without problems … are any of those on XP computers running Net frame 1.1.x?
If the answer is “No, you can’t run C6 on an XP computer with Net frame 1.1.x, even with a fully updated USB-eLicenser” - does anyone know of a utility that will look in my older XP music computer for incompatibility of existing programs/hardware (music or otherwise) with XP Net frame 3.5? I wouldn’t want to do that individually for each and every piece of hardware/software on the computer!
Thanks in advance for any help!
