Hello, here you find the Cubase LE5 activation procedure.

  1. After Cubase LE5 disc has been installed on your computer, you should download and install latest eLicenser Control Center version which is available at link below
    http://www.elicenser.net/en/latest_downloads.html
  2. Afterwards you have to open an account into Steinberg website
    https://www.steinberg.net/en/mysteinberg.html?logintype=logout
  3. you have to enter in your MySteinberg Page -> Activation&Reactivation and select Cubase LE 5 -> Permanent Activation and you ought to key in “Soft-eLicenser number” and selecting the Hardware in which you have found DVD’s Cubase LE 5; I suggest to you of selecting the plus sign for understanding which number do you need.
  4. You will receive an activation code by email. You have to put it in eLicenser Control Center.
    For opening it you have to go into Start Menu -> Program ->eLicenser -> Enter activation code
    I strongly recommend you of deactivating firewall, anti-virus software and using an Internet connection without routing.
