Reformatted PC and I cannot reactivate Cubase

I got Cubase 8 with my purchase of a MOXF 8 Keyboard a couple months ago. I have since had to reformat my PC due to some issues I was having, and now I am unable to reactivate Cubase since my activation key was used from before I had reformatted.

Is it possible for me to reactivate it without actually purchasing a copy of it, or do I have to purchase a seperate copy to activate it after reformatting? Thanks a lot for any help.

If you registered Cubase like you were asked to during your first time running it, your MySteinberg account should have a link that allows you to reactivate Cubase AI. This is a separate thing from your forum account.

Looks like this was it. Thanks a lot!
