Cubase Elements 11 trial varsion requires dongle?

So, on the webpage it says only pro requires a dongle. But after downloading Elements and trying to start, it says “No valid licence. The program will quit”.
What’s wrong with you people? Get your sh*t together.

Hi and welcome on the forum,

Have you activate the license in the eLCC, please? Have you started the Usage Period in the eLCC? How does the license look like in the eLCC?
