after updating to v9.5.5 (Mac OS 10.13.6), I now get this message (screen shot) as Cubase is loading at the start. Nothing seems missing when I open the e-licenser tab.
FIX: broke out a new e-licenser “dongle”, and transferred my licenses from my 10 year old dongle to the new one. Seems OK now. Thanks Chris in support!
FWIW, all was good until the 9.5.5 update. Coincidence?
