Can secondhand Cubase 9 Pro be updated to 9.5 Pro?

Post by N_K » Sun Jan 28, 2018 9:13 am

After buying secondhand Cubase 9 Pro that has its license on USB-eLicenser, will it be possible to update to 9.5?


I'm assuming that if USB-eLicenser registration has been deleted from seller's MySteinberg account (as advised here: https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/kn ... cense.html ),
then it will be possible to register that USB-eLicenser with Cubase Pro 9 license to buyer's MySteinberg account, and receive same update options as seller had - is this true?

If the license is registered and working as yours then yes, you will be able to upgrade as usual.

Yes that is true. You cannot upgrade the license to 9.5 unless you have the license registered to your own MySteinberg account.

Sure you can (but onviously shouldn't). All it takes is an update license code which you get with the purchase of the update. No proof of a registered USB key necessary.
