Steinberg hooked me up with an answer just an hour ago. I had the same problem. Here;s your solution! (and i didn't use the free 25 hour serial either. Enjoy!
If you cannot tell me an activation code with which you've downloaded a
license onto the USB-eLicenser, there is another possibility to retrieve
its number. It might be noted in the log file
"POS_Used_eLicenser_Serialnumbers.log" on a computer to which the
USB-eLicenser has been connected. If present, the file is located here:
- Mac OS X: /Library/Logs/eLicenser/
- Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application
- Windows Vista or later: C:\ProgramData\eLicenser\Logs\
Furthermore, you can create a support file via the eLicenser Control
Center by selecting "Creat Support File" from the "Support" menu.
Please send me the files.
Just to provide an interim solution, here's an activation code with which
you can download an universal temporary license onto your blank
0240 7CYF IYWS IAJA SPFD IB00 1197 8431
It will expire after 25 operating hours, so make sure to quit all
Steinberg applications if you don't use them.
