I compiled (it took 2 hours) and tested all versions. Starting from version 1.3.505 "all" nebulas and nats (beta and commercial) will NOT expire any more. So this weird thing should never happen again. Copy protection is less effective, but who cares.
The only version based on vstgui4 is still the client version of server release. It should take advantage from hardware accelleration.
Today in the evening we'll release all versions for windows, I think we'll release mac osx version on next week. Mac osx is less prioritary since mac osx customers just send the serial of their macs, so a serial is ALWAYS generated, while in windows world someone is not able to generate a serial at all.
There are 2. 1 in the Vectors folder, 1 in Programs (in nebulatemprepositories folder, wherever yours is). Just copy and paste them to a safe spot. I am on Windows, by the way, so if you are on a Mac, it may be different.

1. Create a folder named AANebulaKeyBackup, for example. 2. Inside this folder create a folder called Vectors and a folder called Programs. 3. Copy your INIT.N2V file to Vector folder and copy your INIT.N2P file to Programs folder. You will find those files in plug-in support installation folder called NebulaTempRepository folder in PC (in PC this path can be changed in the installation setup however is fixed in MAC and the path is Mac HD/Library/Audio/Presets/AcusticaAudio/Nebula3/). 4. You can add Library Installer PC/MAC file/s, so this little application will search for your plug-in support installation folder (NebulaTempRepository) and copy the files for you.
Just happened to me as well. Wow, just wow. I'm on a Mac. So, if I can find these little files on a backup drive, then I delete the ones that are currently in the Program and Vectors folders, and replace with the older backup versions, and then relaunch Nebula? Or, I can wait for an update, which will fix it? Are those the correct options? Wow.
