Eagerly waiting for an R2R version, but thanks for the fast work!

Maybe they are working to crack MusicLab's V6

You can download the update from Steinberg and use it with R2R's Silk e-mu from 12.0.30 release. No need to wait for new release. Probably. I have to check that one out, but I'm pretty sure it works.

yeah but then you need to touch the steinberg downloader again, which is ewwww.

but in theory it should work.
If you want to supply something, you can. PM is open for that.
  Member 9.10.2013 3 174
No, it doesn't. Have you even tried it? I did...
  Member 9.02.2021 167
Thats right, it showed license error, probably R2R will release newer version of Silk Emulator.
  Member 9.10.2013 3 174
Silk Emulator is not the problem. You need the proper R2R release (installer) to make it work.
  Member 18.04.2015 1 223
for me works fine with last silk
  Member 9.10.2013 3 174
Hard to believe.
The original installer requires Steinberg Activation Manager to launch when the R2R's does not.
Are you absolutely sure?
  Member 18.04.2015 1 223
Not asking for manager here.. Windows 11 and vr or manager Not installed .
  Member 16.11.2013 7 140
I had 12.0.10 R2R and since then, have installed 12.0.20, 12.0.30 and now 12.0.40 using the Steinberg Download Assistant and always worked without any licensing issues or errors. Just need to make sure the correct file it in place. Look up previous releases,and I put location of file in there. Can't remember where it is ATM and not at home.
  Member 7.08.2018 25
Yes, he's correct. Download all updates from Steinberg. Then go to:
Program Files/Common Files/Steinberg/Team R2R/license-engine-access. dll

Copy this file then paste it in:

Program Files/Common Files/Steinberg/Activation Manager.

If you have R2R Silk Emulator installed (and you haven't installed any of the above files into different locations) then it will work with every Steinberg update so far.

*You need to copy/paste this file EVERY time you update Cubase/Nuendo/Wavelab*
  Member 9.10.2013 3 174
Thanks a lot for the info. I've tried with Dorico and it works as well.
So, the only difference between R2R installers and the official ones, is the location of the "license-engine-access.dll" file.
  Member 9.02.2021 167
They are right it works, after installation overwrite "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\TEAM R2R\license-engine-access.dll" to "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\Activation Manager\license-engine-access.dll"
  Member 24.10.2021 1 42
Yep. Works like a charm with the official d/l installer.
  Member 7.08.2018 25
It does work. I just updated Cubase and Nuendo. I always use this method as it's faster to download straight from Steinberg and if you have the R2R Silk Emulator installed, it's insane not to use it.
  Resident 21.10.2014 10 587
It is working,at least Nuendo , i have tested with latest R2R Silk emu. No need for anything else just to update and you are good to go. @Articstorm No need for SDA, download from support page on Steinberg site. No license error, everything is just fine.

Win11 - My system is pure gold with respect to setup - I think any that know me or seen my writings online would accept as much to be true, and it is. I am getting .NET Runtime errors when running Nuendo and Cube setups that happen about halfway as it is unpacking. In version 4 .NET, it is happening. I will say more if I ever know more. Rock on. Might just be my machine but this is doubtful. I don't experience any sorts of errors in all I do, otherwise. :)

Of course, official setups are not even needed to run, but hey if this is afffecting others negatively and I eventually have something to say, I will. :)

By the way, Steinberg .exe always have digicert stuff at end of the binary. You can always delete it all with a hex editor (usually around 10 to 12 KB), directly where the padding or 00 00 end after </assembly> and the digicert block (security) begins. :) Yes, all of their .exe even the license ones, etc...
  Member 4.06.2022 14 161
Ok, I return now. (haha) Nothing new to say about my .NET issue (I might have inadvertently caused it when trying to fix Syntronik 2 and talking about it on here. Maybe!) It is a benefit of using intelligence I guess. heh

I installed Nuendo 12.0.40 all by hand instead and it is rockin' with the custom R2R setup, as is. I suspect the same for Cube. Rock on all.

If you have custom graphics or whatnot like that, backup your Cube and Nuendo folders before installing, so you can compare and/or replace after.
  Member 18.04.2015 1 223
Nuendo working fine with silk from r2r on w11 here
  Member 23.12.2017 6
I can verify as well that both Cubase and Nuendo updates work fine with current R2R Silk emu. You just need to re-copy and paste the R2R .dll into the Steinberg Activation folder.

Glad to hear that, but my downloaded installer from Steinberg refuses to start installing without Activation Manager. ( Latest silk, Nuendo 12.0.20 already successfully installed, but not removed yet.)
Wondering what you guys did different .
Hints welcome, thanks in advance
  Member 7.08.2018 25
Don't bother with the installer. Download direct from the Downloads section.

Thanks for the quick response, but what do you mean with the 'download section' ?
