Cubase Artist 7 transfer to new computer

I’ve purchased a new computer and want to transfer Cubase Artist 7 from my old to my new computer. After I load the program disk, I’m asked for the activation code. When I enter it I’m told it’s already in use. Is there a procedure I’m missing in order to do this?

Don’t try to activate. You already have the license on the dongle. Just install Cubase, plug in the dongle, and get to it. Also, don’t try to “register” (if you have the first time you installed). Just click “already registered”.
