Haha, this is such a great set that I doubt anyone wants to sell his/hers.
Then there is the problem of how you will get the dongle license to actually play it.

Even if somebody would be willing to sell this set, the license cannot be transferred as MDA stopped license transfers of HW 4.2 sets in January:

This is subject for a law suit I fell, honestly. We are being pushed into buying HW5. The value of all my samplesets for HW4 just fell to nothing.

Anyone who has the latest news on this development?

When you upgrade to HW5, you can upgrade all you dongle-protected sample sets to HW5 as well.
I don't see a loss of value.

And by the way, all the non-dongle sets for HW 4 can be installed in HW5 without any problem whatsoever. No loss of value here either.

Why would this be law suit worthy? Am I going to sue the computer industry with lawsuits because my very old Windows and all its compatible software doesn't work anymore on my new computer with Windows 10 64-bit?

The bane of the computer world is the constant need to upgrade to the latest; then your software and tomorrow your hardware, or vice versa.

I see terrible inconvenience here, but no grounds for a lawsuit.

Thanks Adri, You are right! I was just a bit upset, that´s all. I have calmed down now. Thanks for the support! :) All best, Jon
