There’s is the lite version and also Aquarius 1.0.35 in the Mac folder but Win, you only have the lite. I guess they are so busy that they forgot to update the box.com with Aquarius.

Aquarius Lite, will be moved to OLD folders in Christmas and Winter vacation campaign. We suggest to use Aquarius 1.0.039.

Yes, we want to use Aquarius and do not want to use Aquarius light. So I suggest you put the Win Version in the box and make it available. Best thing would be you do it today, so that I don’t have to search 32 pages in this thread for the installer. ;)

Not sure if this has been asked and answered yet (I searched), but I need to de-authorize my licenses across a few machines as I am switching to new machines this week, and selling my old ones.

Aquarius doesn't seem to have a de authorization feature. How is this possible?

Thanks!
Mark

I think it has, don’t think it’s possible yet.... I’m waiting for this too, is essential really as I’ve wasted a couple of activations and like you will be getting a couple of new systems soon. However, if you are stuck just email support and they will sort you out with additional licenses....but yea, this one needs to happen soon!

Yes, we 100% need the ability to de-authorize, preferably thru Aquarius.

I have had my tech building i9 hackintosh's just to keep up with CPU hungry Aquas and this means changing system IDs and other hardware often in order to create a stable build.

If Acustica is going to quietly ask us to push custom builds in order to run multiple instances of their latest plugs at 96khz then we need the ability to turn on and off Auths please.

Thanks!

Agree too!
We need a de-authorize tool, I change my system 1 or 2 times per year (I have almost all the Acustica plugins), some of the plugins have 5/5 now... On my side, I only need 1 activation, but with deactivation.

When this feature arrives I hope it can be used with Prime Studio plugins.

I have another request for Aquarius.
Since the AAX instalation path is fixed, could you please refer it to a subfolder named AA or Acustica or whatever?
For each Acqua I install I get a bunch of different items (e.g. Ebony 28 items) and I own all of your plugins. You can figure out how my aax folder looks like...
It would be very nice to have them all grouped in the same Acustica folder, or even better in a folder per plugin.

Thank you

De-authorization is not supported by our system.

Each commercial product includes five authorization slots, NFR products include ten authorization slots, and trial products include two authorization slots. Free products do not use our protection system and you do not need an authorization to use them.

Customers with commercial products may require additional authorization slots if they consume the initial five. Additional authorization slots are free of charge if they are not used abusively.

Hi,
please let me ask this before I start reinstalling everything with Aquarius again:
I notice that latest Aquarius lists most of my already installed plugins as 'manual updates only ( please re-install)' or 'manual updates only'.
But most of those listed plugins are already up to date as they were updated by me the old, manual way 1-2 months ago.

Just to be sure: Aquarius can't see if my plugins are already updated/ latest build (as I said all had been updated manually the old way) by looking at my personal, added installation path? Can Aquarius only check the up to date status of Aquas hat were updated or reinstalled through Aquarius itself? And then: I will have to keep those files in the stagearea as to have Aquarius keep track of what was updated when?
I fear you will confirm this and I will ask: Can we have a more comfortable solution where Aquarius can read what needs to be updated by looking at my vst plugin folder and at what version is already installed on the computer?

2) Is there a way for me to see what build I have installed by looking at the installed files in my vst/Aucsticax64 folder? (I can't seem to find a way what it is but keeping the installation zip files in a seperate folder on an external hd to keep track)

3) As storage space is tight on my OS ssd : can I move the stagearea folder on an external (usb connection) drive such a western digital passport without any problems?

Many thanks for a quick reply!!!
regards

Question about Orange:
I downloaded Orange with Aquarius-listed in the 'purchased' section- but it doesn't show in the 'update' section afterwards.
Why not? Tan for example does...

thanks
