I have the same win10 1903 demo mode issue, which could not be solved by getting/importing a new license file.
So I went to this page which seems to be by DMS as it has their social media accounts linked and the "buy" button forwards to PB:
https://www.ascension-vst-synthesizer.com/contact

No reply as of now.
Will let you know when that changes.

Toodle pip.

Cool, thanks. I'll send a support request to them as well. :tu:

Got the answer very quickly.
It basically boils down to what strovoknights wrote above: delete the license.dat (or move it, if you want to be extra careful), re-do the licensing process at the cubicaudio site, import the new .asl file, done.

I asked Peter @ Ascension whether I could post the official information on how to solve this in this forum.
He kindly provided us with both the PC and Mac answer, so here we go:
Here's the official line for both PC & Mac license issues:

Some updates to your PC or Mac may change your Hardware ID. To fix this you'll need to re-license Ascension.

• Visit your CubicAudio > Ascension folder. If you see a file named 'license.dat' inside, delete this file.

(PC location) 'Documents > CubicAudio > Ascension
(MAC Location) 'Mac HD > Library > Application Support > CubicAudio'

• Re-license Ascension using your serial number and the activation link below, download this file to your Desktop or Documents folder.
Licensing link: https://cubicaudio.co.uk/licensing/index.php

• Open the Ascension VST in your DAW, or Standalone. You'll find this in your Start Menu (PC) or Application folder (Mac).

• Choose Ascension > OPTIONS > Settings

• Choose 'Import License', using the 'my-name.license.asl' file from your Desktop/ Docs folder.

If Ascension is correctly licensed you will see your name on this screen:

Ascension 1.5 free update coming soon!
Hope that helps the other forum members, too :)

Thanks but did you ask him if this is something we'll have to do after every major Windows 10 Update ? Like I said whatever they've locked the Machine ID to is not a good idea if it can be broken so easily. I'll check to see if I got a reply as well.

I'll try this fix later when I boot the studio......

EDIT: OK I got a response to my support request as well and I gave them an ear full. Of the over four hundred plugins I own so far only Ascension and two XLN plugins were broken by the Win 10 update (even Pace soft e-licenser plugins were not affected). As I told them it hardly inspires one to purchase any other plugins that can't survive a Windows feature update without jumping through hoops to get them working again........ :shrug:

I believe in division of labour and knew you would ;)

The 1.5 update hinted at might indeed be a good point to reconsider what leads to a new Win10 Hardware ID...
