ELicenser from Cubase 5

I’m planning to buy Cubase Elements 7, or Cubase Artist 7.5.
I have an USB eLicenser from Cubase 5. Can I use it (the hardware), or there is a new one that I should buy?
Any issues of USB eLicenser with Win8.1?
Any special tips/tricks regarding the new license over the old e-Licenser?

Elements 7 uses the soft eLicenser by default, bit you can use your Cubase 5 key, if you want to transfer the license to a USB key. and Cubase Artist 7.5 will come with its own USB elicenser, since it’s a full bersion.
