It’s that awful time where I need to do a feature update for Windows 10 which installs a new version of the OS. This time I’m going from 20H2 to 21H2.
When a new version of the OS is installed this can cause registered plugins to de-activate because they detect they are on a “new” system. To avoid this problem for affected plugins one has to de-activate the licenses, perform the Windows OS upgrade, and then re-activate the licenses.
I know I have to perform this deactivate/reactivate procedure with Gig Performer and the GSi VB3-II plugin.
Does anyone know if any of the following plugins are affected by this upgrade issue?
- Plugins using iLok (DB-33, Velvet, Eighty-Eight)
- XLN Audio (Addictive Drums 2, Addictive Keys)
- Native Instruments
- Overloud (BReverb2, TH3)
Last time I forgot about VB3-II and I had to get the company to reset my licenses.
