Cubase elements 8 No valid licences found?

I had cubase 7 elements and cubase 7.5 and even nuendo 4 trial then nuendo latest trial at one point.
I sell some software when I get tired of it.
So I thought to trial cubase elements and then make a move at cubase 8.
But I get no valid licenses found for elements 8 and the elicencer code window.

Not sure what I did wrong?I noticed my computer date is off because I use acronis system restore and it restored me back to last month but I dont think that could have been an issue at all.

I do not have ANY steinberg cracks at all or ever on this computer as I actually paid for 7.5 (As of last month in use)

That’s the only thing I think could be is the acronis restoring, it also wiped out my old cubase 7.5 that I no longer own.

Still kicking around the idea of buying 8 but I might just buy elements if I Can take a spin demo.
My recording needs have gotten slimmer as I have ditched most all software now.

My Syncrosoft key is not installed as I sold it but I have a second USB key
