    Sorenson squeeze lite no longer activated

    Hi All,

    Just discovered that Sorenson squeeze lite is no longer activated with a subscription license.

    Is this an intentional action (Due to the product going EOL) or is this a side effect of the new free, standard, ultimate licensing scheme?

    Thanks.

    There are a bunch of posts about this. They EOL and out of business. There was a free version of 11.1 Pro at a link that accepted any old S/N, but that was like 6 months ago and I think that link was removed. Poke around and you'll find the link and info. Good luck.

    Hi Fazz,

    I'm aware of that thread and about the 11.1 pro version that doesn't need to access the web for activation.

    But I was not aware that the lite version would no longer activate itself with a new MC subscription.

    While it does continue to have an output link to Sorenson Squeeze, Avid no longer supports the EOL product. Not an unusual or unexpected thing. ;)

    Hi Robert,

    Not really no, but the lite version specifically required 'just' an active MC subscription. That requirement was 'not restricted' to a version so you could assume that it should still work. And anyone with an existing subscription will find that at the next renewal or system format he/she will not be able to re-activate Sorenson Squeeze lite.

    In most cases I wouldn't have created a thread about this but...

    Sorenson was friendly enough to release a final 11.1 version that only needs an valid key from a previous version... no further activation needed... great gesture. Avid however blocks the lite version for technical and/or legal (or unknown) reasons. Was that necessary?

    I searched for the 11.1 Pro installer without success... perhaps someone else still has it and will email it to you... but you will need a previous serial number.

    ...I just found the installer (zip file). If you want it, email me with your email address and I will send it to you. Perhaps it still works... I dunno.

    Hi Robert,

    I have the installer and access to multiple keys of older versions. Still thanks for the offer.

    The problem is not with myself but one I encountered at one of our (reseller) customers.
