Getting this error on launch

I get this elicenser error every Cubase Pro 13.0.21 launch on Win 11 Pro. Removed and reinstalled elicenser and VST Connect Pro 5. App was upgraded and activated to Steinberg Activation months ago and worked fine. Why this now? what is connect POS?


Please, make sure, you install the very latest VST Connect component. The latest version doesn’t need eLicenser Control Center anymore.

I had installed VST Connect Pro (SE) 5 from download assistant. Is that the correct version? 5.6?


5.6, yes. Now make sure it is activated worth the Steinberg Activation Manager properly, please.
