If you've activated a license shortly before the release of a newer version, you might be eligible for a free Grace Period update. The exact Grace Period duration depends on the program.
For details, please select the license management system the newer product license utilizes below.
Uncertain whether the product uses Steinberg Licensing or still the old eLicenser? Please check this page for an overview of all applications supporting Steinberg Licensing.
Grace Period to eLicenser-based products
If you've activated an eLicenser-based license and its successor is still relying on an eLicenser to store the license and is NOT using the new Steinberg Licensing license management, please proceed as follows:
Please open the eLicenser Control Center application installed on your system and click on the "Maintenance" button to initiate the Grace Period eligibility check for all connected eLicensers.
If you are eligible, the eLicenser Control Center can upgrade the license in question - just follow the on-screen dialogues. Once the license upgrade is done, you can download and install that new version. Most recent and current product downloads can be found in the Steinberg Download Assistant. If you do not have the Steinberg Download Assistant installed yet, you can find the download at https://www.steinberg.net/go/
Alternatively, you can find many product downloads on our regular download pages - especially older ones that are not available in the Steinberg Download Assistant.
