The 'Online Synchronization & Maintenance' procedure finished. Some problems occurred. Details are listed below.

Step 1: FAILED (Updating eLicenser License Database)
Step 2: OK (Repairing Soft-eLicenser)
Step 3: OK (Validating License Usage Periods)
Step 4: OK (Cleaning up eLicenser Memory)
Step 5: FAILED (Recovering License Transactions)
Step 6: FAILED (Sending eLicenser Information)
Looks the same for me. I think all steps that require a connection to the license server fail.

I was trying to run a demo of some software that is on offer over Christmas, looks like the offer will be over before I can get the demo software to run.

I wonder if other companies who use the elicenser can claim compensation from Steinberg for ruining their Christmas promotions.

I cant believe that there is apsolutely no chance that we find out what is the problem and when will it be solved. I have never seen anything like this. Im furious.

I've just had an email response back from Customer Service AskNet AG

"I am very sorry but I´am unable to sort this out directly as I´am not having access to the systems of Steinberg.

That´s the reason why we did forward the issue to Steinberg directly.

A view minutes ago I was informed, that they got problems with their licence service which they will fix as soon as possible.

Please give it a try by the end of the day.

Thanks in advance for your patience as well as understanding."

Trial versions need demo licenses which have to be put on your dongle just the same. You would end up here again.

Been around here for a while now and not seen this happen before with Steinberg.
Sure there's been some downtime every now and then, but not this long and always with a swift response from Steinberg that they are on the case.
I guess it's just bad timing.

I hope you all get your new software registered asap, I know I would be upset if I couldn't use my new toys!
Software: Steinberg Cubase Pro 8 64-bit.

Thanks for letting us now. Would be really nice to read this on any official website (Steinberg, eLicenser, whatever ...).

Same problem here, very disappointing it still hasn't been solved.

Got a Response from the Vengeance Forum from Manuel Himself
I would expect this too in 2014. I dont think its maintenance any more. A service on the server hung up or maybe something else
We are very angry about this. The Steinberg staff is just not there (holiday), this just not acceptable

they just deleted the forum topic, where several dozens of customers complained
http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtop ... 8&start=50
Steinberg is even Deleting Topics About this
I Think I am going to look at the Cubase Logo again
