I just downloaded Cubase, but I haven’t been able to start it yet. Whenever I open it, it says “No License Found” so I click, again, the ‘Active License’ button. When I put in the eLicense Activation Code, it does show in the box below that I have a license for Cubase 9.5. I click ‘agree’ but it says 'the Activation Code is already in use and cannot be used again. The first time I put it in, it went through past this part and I clicked ‘Finish License Activation’ or something and then the program didn’t open. Now, it stops before completing the activation to tell me that I can’t reuse the activation code, but the first time I used it, nothing happened.
I have already tried opening/updating the eLicense Control Center and running the Maintenance, but nothing happens. It shows, as it does on my Steinberg account, that I have the license for Cubase, but that’s it. I still can’t open it because my license was already used (by me). I’ve restarted my computer twice and re-downloaded the eLicense Control Panel a couple times but nothing has changed. The eLicense Control Panel is the most up-to-date one. I just tried running as Administrator and the same problem came up. (I read afterwards someone mentioning that I should’ve downloaded Cubase as the Administrator to avoid some problems. I didn’t do that, but I hope it can be resolved otherwise, I do not want to redownload this again.)
To recap: I’ve activated the license but can’t open the program because it keeps prompting me to put in the (already used) activation code and won’t let me in because the activation code was… already used.
I bought an audio interface that came with the DAW download access code and everything if that makes any difference.
I’ve read through similar problems, but none where the activation code went through but didn’t work.
