  1. My understanding is that when the trial period expires, the editing functionality is locked and it switches to Melodyne player which can playback only, and there is no charge. Therefore, there is no need or way to cancel your trial.
    (If you want your editing functionality back, just purchase license and activate it)

    FYI: If I remember correctly, in the previous version Melodyne 4, some functions such as "audio to MIDI conversion" were still available after the trial period ended, but they should not work after version 5.

  2. "ACEDAO.DLL" appears to be a file related to Microsoft Office.
    In the Cakewalk preferences, has a folder other than the plugin folder been added as the scan path for the VST plugin? If a non-plugin folder is listed in the "VST Scan Paths", remove it.
    (e.g. "C:\Program Files", "C:\Program Files (x86)", etc...)

    If you are not sure how to set it up, please provide a screenshot of the Preferences - File - VST Settings.

    Or, if by some mistake you have copied the file "ACEDAO.DLL" into the plugin folder, simply remove it. (Might need to put it back where it belongs.)

  3. The activation toast appeared and automatically opened the browser login page. All I had to do was log in.
    FYI: Nothing happened when I clicked on the notification toast.

    This time it seems to have expired after about 3 months instead of 6 months. Maybe something changed on the back end.

  4. When you say cwp icon, are you referring to the icon image of the project file or the project file (*.cwp) itself?

    If you cannot find the project file itself, try to search the entire drive by typing *.cwp in the Explorer search box.

    If there is no icon image in the project file, check the cwp file association.

    If you have a serial number for Essential, you can use it as a coupon to get a €20 discount direct with Celemony.
    It doesn't even matter if it has been registered as mine has been. 
    Just entered that registered Serial No and it brought the update to Studio 5 from version 4 down to €9.

    I have several Essential serial numbers, can I use only one at a time as a coupon?
    If I can use more than one at a time...

    When you make your order from the BFDdrums site, make sure you use your InMusic email address, because the serial numbers aren't sent via email anymore, but deposited directly into your InMusic account associated with that email.  I did not know this and used my email associated with my PayPal account to make the order.

    This is good to know.

    I had a similar experience when I purchased Mixcraft after SONAR stopped development. Because I paid via Paypal, the Mixcraft credentials were tied to my Paypal email address, which I later had to have changed. (I have since changed my Paypal email address to my DAW-related email address.)

    I missed that!

    Cakewalk Next beta installer can only be downloaded from the Discord server.
    It is a great mystery to me why you did not know about the Discord server.

    Where did you download the installer from?

    Next is still in public beta so I don't know what else you'd call it


    How about "Cakewalk Next"?

    "Cakewalk Next" is currently in public beta testing and the latest version is currently

    Bug reports, suggestions and discussions about Cakewalk Next should take place on dedicated Discord server.

    Has Cakewalk changed its use of Webview2 runtime?

    In the following thread, @Jesse Jost explains "For clarification, the WebView2 component is necessary for sign-in because it supports the modern web. (~omission~) Due to account authorization and product activation, not having this runtime is not an option."

    I did uninstall  Webview 2

    Seems you missed my comment, so I write it again.
    The Webview2 component is required for Cakewalk activation.
    Sorry, this was outdated information.

    I did uninstall MS  edge and Webview 2 as the whole system seemed to get unstable when installed today. And worked fine again  once removed.

    If MS Edge isn't the "Required" browser to install updates, not sure why the Cakewalk installer forced it on me this time?

    The Edge WebView2 component is required for Cakewalk activation. (Sorry, this was outdated information.)
    If I remember correctly, it's a required component starting with Cakewalk version 2021.01
