In that case, you still have a licence for Cubase Elements 11. If that was on a soft eLicenser but is not on the computer you want it on, use the ‘Reactivate’ option in the eLicenser section of My Steinberg.
If the Cubase Elements licence was on your USB eLicenser, just install Cubase Elements 11 and make sure the USB eLicenser is plugged in.
If you updated from an older version, then your Cubase Elements 11 license remains and you can still use it the very same way, as you did before the update. The license is marked as “not-upgradable”, so you cannot upgrade it anymore. This is the only change.
No USB-eLicenser is needed. It’s the same as it was before the update. So if your license was the Soft-eLicense, it remains as Soft-eLicense. If you have transferred your license to the USB-eLicenser manually, then use the USB-eLicenser with the license.
You don’t need the Activation Code. Your Cubase Elements 11 license has been activated already.
Just installed cubase element 11, just works perfect.
Only problems, i think i installed the vst transit, dont where it came from, properly from cubase element 11, or the cubase pro 12 trial.
elicenser is complaining , about “i dont have a license for vst transit”, its ok, i dont need this vst transit thing, other than that, every thing is working perfect.
When you updated Cubase Elements 8 to Cubase Elements 12, two things happened. You were given a Steinberg Licensing licence for Cubase Elements 12. Your eLicenser licence for Cubase Elements 8 was updated to “Cubase Elements 11 (updated to Cubase Elements 12 with Steinberg Licensing)”.
What this means is that you now have an eLicenser licence for Cubase Elements 11 - which is the last version of Cubase to use eLicenser - and that it is marked as already having been updated to Cubase Elements 12. When a new paid update to Cubase comes out, you will update your Cubase 12 licence on Steinberg Licensing.
