HALion Preset Trial error when opening C7

When C7 opens I get a "HALion Preset Trial error " missing license or activate, but Halion Sonic and Halion 4 trials have been removed. So my question is it because it has been added to a cubase project file?

Or would this cause an error only when I open a .cpr file that may have used the Halion VST?

Thanks, Perry.

HALion and HALion Sonic is not part of Cubase. Just the HALion Sonic SE is part of Cubase.

If you use any other instrument/plug-ins, which is not licenced, in the Project. Cubase says it to you. You can use (play/edit…) the project, but you can’t use these plug-ins.
