That's interesting, so they are leaving the elicenser servers online as all other licenses get ported, so by that I assume there will be a central hub for all licenses previous held on the dongle, which means the vengeance ones I own wont need a dongle either, that's made my day.
I would rather assume that none of that is a given yet, because you don't know how the system will work. They also said that the new authorization will only happen for products which are still supported, which means supported by Steinberg
in my book. And it also means that it's only for products which are still being sold.
As far as I understood it, at least some, if not all, of the license retrieval is via the MySteinberg database. Which is a problem, because, the way I experienced it, it doesn't work properly. I have licenses in MySteinberg which I already sold, simply because the database obviously doesn't work properly, showing licenses which are not present on the dongles.
Disclaimer to everyone: Please don't take what I said for granted, and make out of that that the system will really work like that in the end, and that it will be all flawed, and that catastrophy will happen. I'm just saying what I experienced, and stating what I read in the Steinberg forums. Maybe their databases work fine, and it's simply a display error, or it doesn't refresh properly. I can't tell, because I have no idea how it works.
