Post by mozizo » Tue May 09, 2017 12:31 pm

I removed the h6 demo license,and it still gives me 5 work hours,but I want to use H5 in new projects,so ill dont have compatibility issues later.
Of course I dont see H5 right now,im forced to use H6! If I uninstall H6 im not sure I it uninstall H5 as well!!

Really thank you steinberg for hijacking my projects with H6 trial.. :twisted: (stupid decision)
why a trial version should be used automatically and replaced with excising project using H5 ?
i decided not to purchase H6 right now (or ever now cuz im pis-sed off) i uninstall H6 trial,now i dont have H5 anymore, installed H5 again, and now my projects with H5 are loaded empty with no sounds in H5..F**ckin nightmare

Most plugins with backwards compatibility work that way, they must replace the previous version to work 100% as intended.

To revert to Halion 5, uninstall Halion 6, Halion Sonic 3 and their content using the Windows control panel and then reinstall Halion 5, plus the Halion 5 and Halion Sonic 2 content. It was painless for me. (I liked Halion 6 but I can't afford it right now!)
;)

Cubase Pro and Wavelab Pro (latest), Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, MSI Z87-G45 GAMING, i5 4690k, GeForce GTX 760, almost every Steinberg plugin and expansion, Trilian, Komplete 10, etc etc etc etc

its a trial version,and every project i opend used with H5 or HS2 it replaced it with H6/HS3..
well nice,but when i wanted to revert to halion 5 i had to uninstall H6, and it uninstalled H5 too !!
not only that' after i installed H5 again (i didnt install the content again cuz i didnt uninstall the H5/6 content, just removed the new H6 libraries with halion content manger)
any way the Halion content is there, but with exciting projects i worked with ,that H6 replaced H5 ,when H5 loaded again after uninstalling H6, all Halion 5 and HS2 where with no sound in the sound slots..
i had to reload and guess by channel name and try to match all sound for those projects all over again !!!
project that i didnt open(furtantly) after the installation of H6 trial, are loaded fine with H5 and the proper sounds.
any way i had a very bad experience with H6 trial installation over H5 with compatibility issues when decided to stay with H5 ..
felt like hijacking "if you dont pay for the upgrade you will have troubles" pay with bitcoins :roll:
