I had zero issues authorizing with Codemeter. My only issue was time needed to download the Factory content (which has always been slower than virtually all other competition), but if that’s the worst of it, I’m good.
If this means VPS and the gang can put a stop to their work being pirated, then I say “awesome”!
I also respect the need of developers to protect their software, and have no problem whatsoever if a developer starts
at the launch of a plugin with CodeMeter, or iLok, or eLicenser, or call-and-resposne, or a keyfile, or anything else. If I don't like a particular scheme, then I simply don't buy. Simple, and fair. The problem comes when a developer like Vengeance imposes a controversial (to say the least) copy protection scheme after
I've already purchased (and spent hundreds of dollars) on a product, in specific reliance
on the copy protection previously used (at the time of my purchase).
If anybody wants to buy my Avenger license please PM me.
Sadly, I expect the resale price is going to be driven down by me and everyone else trying to unload this once-great, now useless plugin.

now I and some more here and other forums want to stay with 1.4.10, but nowhere to download 1.4.10 (okay asking René) and the Factory-R6 neither can have XPs for it
I´ve some Sweetwaters "empty" and could/would fill them with old XPs: why is this not possible now?
I'm in the same situation. Four empty XPs from the Sweetwater pack, now never to be filled, due to Vengeance's decision to switch copy protection horses midstream and punish everyone who bought Avenger earlier without even letting us "use up" our preset packs. As stated above, I specifically bought Avenger in part because, and based on the representation that, the copy protection was ordinary key file. If nothing else, this thread has demonstrated that this matters to some people (like me). Vengeance's decision to switch (without offering refunds to everyone who purchased based on Vengeance's claims about its copy protection), costing people hundreds of dollars, is unacceptable. (Not that I have any choice but to accept it.)
