Hi Steve

Double check the size of your HS2 dvd iso. It should be:

Size: 3.20 GB (3,440,465,920 bytes)
Size on disk: 3.20 GB (3,440,467,968 bytes)

My first download reported to be approx. 1.7GB with no indication that there was any problem with the download or file or that any of it was missing ! Clearly this wouldn't be able to load all the samples / data necessary. I've had the same happen with the Grace Period update too.

Can I suggest including the above figures on the download page if this turns out to be the problem and prompting users to check before installing?

Sincerely hope that helps you and others out.

Hi Potential O M

Thanks for the info. My disk seems to have , believe it or not 3.3 Gigs of data! Still no joy installing. Will try a fresh download.
Cheers

Luis, thanks a lot for the alternative solution... But I would expect the people from Asknet to solve the problem.
The files are HUGE, and it is to be expected that your internet connection would fall down for a few seconds. As a matter of fact, it only takes to glimpse for a fraction of a second, and re-start from the last point is not possible.
I rather be composing / arranging 7 Producing / recording / mixing instead of spent hours trying to figure it out, because I have Cubase for that purpose, and not to learn how to cope with my Mac.
A shame Steinberg doesn't see it this way.
Regards
Martin

I wasn't able to install HALion Sonic SE Content for Cubase Artist 7.5 to save my soul (but fortunately, the salvation of my soul didn't depend on it!)... it kept hangin up in the middle of the install and giving me an error. I downloaded the .iso numerous times and burned numerous DVD's... to no avail.

I finally got it done by installing directly from the .iso file with a free utility called Daemon-Tools Lite... worked like a charm!

I had similar problems with my content after upgrading. Once I downloaded the iso files and burned them to a DVD I installed from those and it solved my issues. Hope that helps someone!

This is my first try at using Cubase (Artist 7.5) and I'm having the same content issues. I use both Mac OSX 10.7.5 and a new Windows 7 machine as well. On the windows machine Groove Agent can't find the VST sound files … I have been instructed by Steinberg to uninstall the old content files and install them again. I did that but to no avail.
On the Mac the Halion contents packets are text files with the suffix .vstsounds. I can look at them in text edit but that's not doing me any good. This is my 2nd download attempt to get those Halion files.
Any one else out there still dealing with this?
Anyone have a solution? :idea:
Thanks

Have you tried rescanning the MediaBay?

I had seen the previous posts on this matter, but I am not sure that they answer my question. As I say in my post, I HAVE downloaded both the 7.5 full install, and also incidentally the Sonic 2 SE content ISOs from the Steinberg website, though it is HALion 5 which I am using and that seems to be working ok after I installed the earlier V4.0 first, though it did seem to me to be a pretty cack-handed way to have to go about it.

So I have both of those substantial downloads available to me.

But having used the V7.5 ISO to try to repair my installation by providing the missing track present content, the content is for some reason STILL missing despite having got an on-screen message saying my installation of V7.5 has been repaired.

Does that mean that I now have to uninstall Cubase 7.5 altogether from my new PC and then reinstall from the ISO mirror which claims to be a full install of V7.5 - all 6.8Gb of it?

Hello,

I am a new user for Cubase. I just purchased Steinberg UR-RT2 interface and tried to install Cubase 10.5 to record music. Unfortunately, my computer uses Windows 8, it cannot install Cubase 10.5. I found Cubase 7.5 is compatible with Windows 8 and downloaded it. However, I cannot register Cubase 7.5 in my eLicenser. I tried many times based on the instruction on this link https://helpcenter.steinberg.de/hc/en-u ... tion-Fails, but is still not successful. The software on my eLicenser Control Center only shows Basic FX Suite and Cubase AI, Cubase 7.5 is not there. Thus I cannot get Activation Code to open Cube 7.5. Could you please help me to resolve this issue? Thank you very much!

Regards,
Yi
