Cubase 11 Trial- do I need a USB Elicenser?

I’m a total noob and want to experiment with Cubase 11. After downloading the trial, I am asked to input an elicense. Do I have to purchase the USB elicense dongle before I can get a trial code? It’s not real obvious.

Cubase 11 what ?
The elements version does not require a dongle.
Artist and Pro, do.
