"No valid license found, the program will now quit"

Hello. I am running a clean install of 10.11.2 El Capitan with the latest updates. I just downloaded the cubase trial from the site and after installing, it gives me the no license error. I downloaded the latest e-licenser and searched for about an hour all over the internet. I was not able to find a solution on the e-licenser support page.

Please help. Thanks.

Did you read this requirement on the download page?

For the Cubase Pro 8.5 Trial you require a USB-eLicenser. With host applications such as Cubase (Pro), Cubase Artist, Nuendo and WaveLab, a USB-eLicenser is already included in the product package. Otherwise, you may purchase a USB-eLicenser from our Online-Shop or your local dealer.
