When I try to open padshop in Cubase 10 Pro I get the “no valid license” message. I reinstalled Cubase, reinstalled the elicense control center, performed maintenance tasks, tried all the steps in this article: https://helpcenter.steinberg.de/hc/en-us/articles/206088144-Error-message-Some-content-could-not-be-loaded-Missing-expired-trial-licenses
I suspect it’s because I accidentally tried to update to Cubase 10.5 without a valid license, and that’s messed everything up. I read this thread: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=172739 and it looks like the only thing that worked was upgrading to Cubase 10.5, but I’d rather not do that right now.
Any idea how I can get out of this mess?
