You're not forced to update to 1.5 - it's totally optional. The money you spent on pre-1.5 and any of your Expansions is still just as valid as it was the day you bought it, and pre-1.5 will continue to work.
we´re!
because we can´t re-download pre1.5
we can´t buy with the Sweetwater tokens any more XPs without updating to 1.5 plus CodeMeter
and specially the last point is for me important: I waited to invest the tokens, because Techno & Acid Breaks were announced here, so I decided to wait until hearing the sounds, but now the "old" XPs would be good enough for me and my kind of music I do. But now I can´t buy'em wihtout CodeMeter etc. :( :(

I just talked to the customer service of WIBU-Systems, the company behind Codemeter. They said they could send me an empty Codemeter-Stick, but it will be useless, because the company (Vengeance) had to "customize" it and put some bits on it. It is NOT just copy your licence-information on it.
Thanks for the info. I spoke to WIBU this morning too, they normally only supply in bulk but were willing to sell one directly (quite a bit cheaper than the site linked earlier in the thread), but obviously I can't buy without confirmation on whether this 'customisation' happens automatically when you select the CmStick on the registration page, or whether it is an additional (possible?) step?

A question for support, I guess...

You might want to backup your 1.4's .vst and also your library (including your bought expansions) dir, before you even try to install the new v1.5x, since as far as I understand it, not all expansions yet are available for the new licensing system. Also, if you saved presets to e.g. the factory library dir, you first should move/save these to another newly created library.

You also might backup your Avenger config dir (macos: ~/Library/Application Support/Vengeance/VPS Avenger) which also contains the machine license file for 1.4.

This codemeter also needs a USB stick—a regular one will do?

Has anyone noticed if this new version has any CPU optimization compared to 1.4 or is it worse?

No, codemeter also works software only. It is pretty much like the old license system, only you need to revalidate each 3 months, but it seems to be a one-button-click action then only (having online connection on the installation machine). The performance looks about the same to me as in 1.4 on my mac system, but it seems to be more stable (haven't had a crash so far).

how is the ressource consumption of codemeter in win10?
Extremely small. It's negligible, and I'm running a fairly ancient 7-8 year old machine.

Huh? No it doesn't. It's a virtual dongle - you just authorize the computer you want to use it on.

well then I have to disappoint you again, these XPs NEED 1.5. since they are using the new Guitar Module, Analog Filters etc of 1.5.
Every new XP pack since launch, required the recent version. You do not want to use CodeMeter... well I see no reason in not doing. If we had implemented and programmed an own new copy protection system and called it V-Meter, you would have had no problem?

I can ask Rene if its (easy) to program, that you can use your sweetwater pick 5 on old XPs. Or even better we send you them by hand. Just contact him via the support email please and tell him which you like. But the new released XPs wont work in 1.4.10 like I said above
