Let's ask this - why do you have no problem
? What do you believe are the benefits for you?
Sure, here's an example. I posted a link to a free VST from NI the other day. In order for it to work, I have to use the NI service center that came packed with the VST. OK, no prob, I'll open it an enter my key. FAIL!. It's says I don't have an internet connection. OK, I uninstalled it, grab the service center installer from NI's site. Run it, it connects to the internet, updates itself. It then runs again, FAIL! It tells me I have no internet connection. Now how is that possible if it just updated itself from the internet. I have tried everything I can think of to make it work, to no avail. What is weird is, it works fine on my work PC, but not my home PC. At least with a dongle I can reg it on another PC and be done.
