Cubase Elements 8 can license work for later version

Hi All

Just installed Elements 9.5 on new laptop,
I have license on ELicenser registered and used a new activation code to reactivate
So all seems good only I have an Elements 8 license
When I open up The Elements 9.5 its coming up “no license found the program will quit now”

This is a fresh install of all steinberg software etc so I take it drivers etc are ok
I have tried running as administrator

Is it a case that it simply wont work due to higher version of Elements?

Any ideas peeps… would appreciate come info and guidance
Thanks for your time

Hi and welcome,

Do you own Cubase Elements 9.5 license? Did you buy an upgrade from Cubase Elements 8 to Elements 9.5?

Cubase Elements 8 license doesn’t work with Cubase Elements 9.5 application.
