elicenser error message

I keep getting this error message after re-installing Cubase and Halion Sonic after upgrading to windows 10. It does not seem to affect anything really, I just bypass it and everything works as it should. The image is from when I was using the Steinberg VSTs for REAPER but it does it when I load anything Steinberg related. I mean, I was getting this message before I installed REAPER. Just wondering what it means and how to correct it
