I had to "Recover" my licenses and all was well until....

Just this month, after the latest Windows 10 Update failed !

(2020-10 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 10 Version 1909 for x64 (KB4578974),

that Waves USB Stick completely failed and along with it my Waves Licenses. Because of the Waves policy of 1 "Recovery" per year (unless I pay my WUP), I am SOL until January 29th 2021.

That policy is very frustrating to say the least.

I think that is a quite poor hardware lock you have on your stick.
