Padshop license in not activated

Hi. Last summer I bought Cubase 10 Pro, and recently activated it.
The Padshop 2 plugin has stopped working after a few days, with a message saying that I have no license to use it.
From what I understood, the plugin comes with Cubase and I don’t need to buy it separately. What can I do about it?

Hi and welcome,

I’m not 100% sure, but Padshop 2 was part of Cubase 10.5 license, not Cubase 10. Or am I wrong?

In any case, if you activated the license few days ago for the first time, you should get Cubase 10.5 for free thanks to Steinberg Grace Period. Just start eLCC application and trigger Maintenance, please.

I am having the same problem. Every time I start Cubase 10 I get a message that Padshop 2 Presets cannot be loaded.

I have no interest in even using Padshop. How can I get rid of this annoying error message?
