Shortcuts of .cpr Not working with 8.0.35 update

I have recently updated to version 8.0.35. When i try to access projects created before the update from shortcuts created on the desktop i now get a “No License Found.” My E licenser control center is active and up to date as well as my license.
When I open Cubase LE AI Elements 8 I can access these old projects by going to
2. Open

Most of them seem to open. Not sure if this is a bug or not. But i use to be able to access all projects via shortcuts(icons for project.cpr on desktop) Thank you!
