"Thanks, rotund ! I finally sorted this out : this was a typo in the serial/activation code i received. Everything is ok now and it wasn't steinberg's culprit. By the way, i did not received any dowload links from steinberg, but my trial, already installed on my computer, was converted in a full licence and everything works fine. So i suppose you just have to download the trial, install, buy the licence and it's ok."
Good to hear you got it sorted.
I actually filled out a support ticket about the missing download links...
Received a link to download a Portico ISO file.
Now I have the proper installers on my own disc safe and sound.
Not crazy about the extra steps involved but oh well.
This has prompted me to gather all my Steinberg installers and put them into a secure, easy to access place.
Thought I could download again if needed but that seems like more headache then I want.
