Confused with Installation of Cubase LE6


I have had a copy of Elements 6 which came with a tascam sondcard I bought over 3 years now, and have finally got aound installing Cubase.
I have attempted to install it, and believe I now have the activation code activated in e-license control center. I think I followed the correct procedures to install the software I cannot find it anywhere on my pc. When I click on try AL6, I get taken to a dead website link.
What am I doing wrong?
Why is it necessary to have a security code for a free copy of the software?
Is the software provided with my hardware product a permament copy or just a trial.
Does it allow me to update to the latest version of the Elements series for free or is there a charge?

Hi and welcome,

Where did you " click on try AL6", please?

Please, follow these steps.
