Cubase won't open after elicenser update


Cubase was running completely fine for me until today. I noticed that none of my licences were showing up in the elicencer control centre, so I decided to re-install it. After re-installation I could see my Cubase 6 license, but then when I open Cubase it now hangs/freezes on startup at ‘initializing content’.

I’ve opened the elicencer control centre and sometimes it shows my licences, and other times it doesn’t. Bit strange.

Has anyone got any ideas for a fix please? I’m a bit up against it with some upcoming deadlines so any help would be much appreciated.


Make sure the dongle is connected to a USB2 connection, without hub, and not a USB3 connection. USB3 was reported to cause problems a couple of times.
