Cubase elements 13 "license not found"

Since yesterday I have no longer been able to log into Cubase, I have an Elements 13 license and an active Cubase 13 Pro trial with macmini M2 Pro. in both cases I can’t access at DAW,
I open software it tells me license not found, in my profile the licences are present.
sent email to support, waiting for news, I have some work to complete…

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Which Cubase do you start (Pro or Elements), please? Could you attach a screenshot from the Steinberg Activation Manager, please?


This is Steinberg Download Assistant, not Steinberg Activation Manager.

sorry I have this screenshot, I’m not at home right now I’ll send it tonight, however it tells me that I don’t have the license and to contact help support.
I downloaded a zip file which I sent to help support

license exists on my profile


Double-check your antivirus and firewall settings. Make sure, the communication with the Steinberg server is not blocked.

Btw, are you starting Cubase Elements 13?

Hi Martin
I solved it uninstall everything including data Steinberg folder on the libraries mac, application support and vst3 steinberg plugin , leaving only the projects folder, restarted Mac, reinstalled everything now works cubase elements and Pro trial…
I don’t know what happened, important thing is that everything works now
thanks for interesting

Hi guys,

I have a similar problem, hope you can help.
I have upgraded to Cubase Elements 13 from Cubase Elements 9.5.

I open the Activation Manager, I see Cubase Elements 13 but Veryfication Pending. I have tried everything the Cubase suport page says but I can’t make it work.

Any ideas?

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Have you tried this, please?

Hi Martin,
Thanks for your response.

Yes I have tried these steps but still nothing.
I’ve keep reading through the articles and trying different things but I can’t make it work.
