Hi and welcome to the forum,

Could you be more specific here, please? What happens exactly?

i can’t activate cubase 11 pro as i can’t upload the license to usb dongole as it gives me that my version of elicenser control center is too old although i have a download access code

Open the Steinberg Download Assistant and wait until it is fully open. It will update the eLicenser Control Center as part of the starting procedure. After that your control center will have the latest version


The eLCC application doesn’t ask for the Download Access Code. It asks for the Activation Code. To get the Activation Code from the Download Access Code, go to your MySteinberg account, please.

Follow these steps to properly activate your Download Access Code:

After following them, please take screenshots of your Steinberg Activation Manager and your eLicenser Control Center (with the eLicenser serial numbers hidden).

Windows 10 is fully supported by Cubase 12. Can you show us the error message if you got any?
