    I have a Cubase 10 pro license and now I want to install Halion and Groove Agent using the VR antitrial. My question is, I will ruin Cubase's license if I do.
    What seems clear is that I must install the licenses of Groove Agent and Halion on the hard disk instead of the dongle, which means that I have to disconnect it before, otherwise they are installed on the dongle.
    Thank in advance

    I answer myself, in case someone finds it useful. The VR antitrial (v4 or v5) makes eLicenser not work. Starts one second without licenses and then close. So, in my experience, you have to choose:
    1. Cubase 10 Pro
    2. Halion / Groove Agent / Padshop pro VR antitrial

    I don't really understand, does this mean that you can't use both at the same time? You can't have both antitrial and usb elicenser?

    Or do you mean you should install cubase 10 pro, activate it and then use the antitrial to unlock the VSTs?

    My copy should arive sometime this week when thomann ships it so this would be good to know.

    From the guy above you it sounds like this is the case. The usb elicenser still relies on the elicenser software. So if antitrial breaks that software... best case scenario, you may have to reinstall elicenser to get cubase working

    Not.. exactly. I had Cubase 9.5 installed with antitrial, and they worked fine together. Installing the "demo" of C10 (from official Steinberg downloader) borked everything up, meaning that C9.5 & C10 wouldn't work unless antitrial wasn't running. Buying legit C10 (upgrade) meant everything worked fine again (ie Groove Agent etcs work fine nao). So, I'd recd keeping every backup of the soft elicenser file (softelicenser.sel) every single time u make a change, however insignificant it might seem! There's no do-overs, rly.

    The USB and soft elicensers seem very separate, tho, the antitrial doesn't seem to affect the USB at all. It's only when you try to "trial" (USB) things that things might go a bit wrong? Again, backup before trying anything. Fresh (legit) installs seem fine, well I've never had any issues...

    Awesome and thanks for the quick responses from both of you

    Interesting and great news. The problem with the trials I suppose makes somewhat sense, as antitrail probably doesn't really understand what it's supposed to do (?). I'm glad to know it works though, in theory at least. I'll make sure to back up the softelicnenser.sel after every change. As far as I can tell, everything related to the licenses gets stored in there, correct?

    I could try to mess around and see what works best. If I have sufficient backups of the softelicenser.sel file I could see if it'd be better to install Cubase 10, activate it, then run antitrail or maybe vise versa (Install antitrail, insert USB elicenser, activate cubase 10 pro), or.. well who knows really.

    What was your process in getting 9.5 legit working properly with antitrial? What steps did you take? Did you take any special steps (like unplugging the elicenser at some point?) Also, I've read somewhere that registering the licenses under registration>Register elicensers is vital, do you recommend doing that in this step? If so, when should I do it? (before or after antitrial)

    Thanks again for the fast and detailed bit of insight, sorry for seeming a bit paranoid, I don't intend to come over that way, I just want to make sure I don't screw this up

    Yeah, that's right! I'd recd making lots of (date/time) directories to back up each time.

    I think I had an old antitrial installed already, then installed C90, then 95. It all went fine throughout. As long as you don't install any new (what I call) trial (actually just USB eLicenser stuff w/o activation) you should be ok. I think there may be a "conflict" between an authorised and unauthorised (aka trial) USB version of Cubase? I'm not sure there's any issue with (ie) a single version of Pro. Once it gets activated on the USB it should work fine. I guess it shouldn't matter which way around you install things w/ C10, I guess I'd prolly install the antitrial first? With a fresh install it should be (famous last words) pretty straightforward.

    (Anyway, you could try doing a test install somewhere (old laptop, desktop w/e) and check it out / test run? I mean, you have infinite installs (potentially) to fool around; with the USB stick being transferable...)

    I would also be (a bit) wary of contacting Steinberg if you run into issues. Not just cos they take ages! They accused me of running "unauthorised downloads" because I downloaded something (C10) what they called "early". Through their own downloader thing! And then they deleted some of my old elicenses remotely! It also didn't fix the issue I had w/ C10 borking everything up :O Anyway, I was relieved when Team VR came to my rescue after upgrading "properly" to C10, everything works ok now. Thank piracy! :D

    To give a short answer... Antitrial patch just trial licence software ,so if you have on USB dongle instaled any FULL licence version it will not be affected by VR antitrial, so that means no break of software in any case (as long the licence is on soft elicencer) ... But if you wanna run a DEMO licence version within USB for example Cubase 10 trial licence ,then antitrial doesnt work and it will cause a app crash ! Simple as that.... Cheers

    p.s. Dongle will never be cracked as far i see and many people from here and there ,anyways the teams should work on same method as AiR did with keygen and that is ,to make a keygen which will instal one legit licence on DONGLE and that is all ,no cracking no patching .... and user or we only have to buy a dongle ,it has a price about USD 30...
