I am still using Nuendo 3 on an old P4 mobo, Windows XP SP1. My machine never goes online. I haven't been to the Steinberg forums in years, nor have I done any software updating in years. Everything has just run great, and I have had no need to seek help or updates, etc.... until now, but I now feel way out of touch. I would like to upgrade from Nuendo 3 to 6, as well as upgrade my Windows box. I don't think I've registered my Nuendo 3 copy (not that I remember anyway); it was an upgrade from 2. I have a dongle, as well as my key activation code, serial no., etc. But, I can't register now without an eLicense(?), and I haven't the faintest as to how to obtain that now, especially given that my studio machine stays offline. I would like to post in some of the Nuendo forums, but it seems I can't without registering. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Can anyone provide a solution in simple terms? Bummer feeling it is, drifting out to sea without so much as a paddle. I should have stayed in touch. Thanks.
