cubase ai 8 claims to have no valid license

when i open cubase, i get an error sayin no license found, and to activate the software. however, the steinberg website says it’s activated and licensed, and so does the e-licenser. I really don’t understand what’s going on and it would be a big help if someone could help me figure it out!


Open eLCC application, can you see the licence here?

Yes i could, which is what seemed weird to me. I actually just tried starting cubase in administrator mode and somehow it’s now running fine
