I just purchased (download mode) Cubase 9.5 and installed it (windows 10, Intel 7, 16 GBram, etc)
I do not have a usb e-licenser key nor can I purchase one (Steinberg does not deliver them to Canada) so:
-I installed the soft e-licenser via this link http://www.elicenser.net/download from this page https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/software_activation/soft_elicenser.html. 3 times after uninstalling and reinstalling then rebooting. My e-licenser is registered in My Steinberg account - but showing no product licenses attached to it.
Each time I launch the soft e-license control center and enter my cubase 9.5 activation key (using Action/Enter activation code), click continue, I cannot select the soft e-licenser icon (red circle with cross bar is on top). Also, the message at the bottom of the next window states exactly (see attachment): ‘Currently, there is no elicenser connected to your computer which you can download your license to. Please connect an appropriate USB-elicenser to your computer’.
If you’ve run into this and fixed it please send your solution my way - thanks!
