Problem with Steinberg Cubase LE 8.

Hi All,

I had a valid Cubase LE 8, for windows, which came along with Focusrite Solo Bundle.

I upgraded my PC (windows 7) a while ago and in the process of reformatting I lost Cubase software. I had written to Focusrite on how to reactivate my license and following their guidance I reactivated my license. In the meanwhile I had downloaded a trial version of the same. All this while my trial version only was working and today it has expired and does not allow any further recordings. I need your support for:

  1. How do I remove the trial version from my eLicenser Control?

  2. How do I start using my full license version?

Looking forward to your help.

Thanks & Regards.

You need to reactivate it. Follow the instructions here:

You don’t need to remove the trial version software or the license.

Thanks for the solution provided I have reactivated my license now.

However, the reactivation was done only for the trail version which keeps reminding me that it will expire after a month. My full license software is not reactivated. This means that I will have to reactivate every month and the full license is not usable seamlessly without interruption.

Let me know if there is a solution to this.

Thanks & Regards.


My license expired recently and when I try to re-validate I get the following message.

“When reactivating, the registration of the original Soft-eLicenser and the corresponding licenses will be deleted.
You will receive new Activation Codes for these products:”

However, how may ever times I try I am not receiving the new validation code.

Is there a way out. I am unable to save any of my recordings.
