i'm having problem connecting to my VEP after switching my license to iLok. the switching license was done smoothly. i downloaded vienna assistant and re-install VEP now has the version 7.1.1226 (before was 7.0.1120).
i can open the VEP server software without problem. But when I open cubase, start new session, add new rack instrument VEP server, i can see the usual 127.0.0.1 localhost  (NEW). But when I choose it and click connect, nothing happen. it won't connect, it just stayed there.
i also checked if i open my old project cubase session that use VEP, the VEP can connect automatically with no problem. the only problem is when i start a new DAW session and add a new instances. is this a bug? please help.
right now i decided to go back to VEP 7.0.1120, and everything is back to normal, but i also need to use the elicenser usb dongle again to be able to open this version.
hopefully there's a solution soon for this problem 🙏🏽
i'm on macos 11.6.5. cubase 11.0.41
