Steinberg Activation Manager - Remove Trial Products

Currently I’ve Cubase 13 Pro but Activation manager still has older versions and trials, I want to know is there a way to remove them, I tried to remove them from my web account but there is no option to delete them, so any ideas or this feature not yet available?


It’s not possible to remove the Trial licenses.

Hi Martin,
Just bought new DAW computer. They pre installed VST connect PRO, but I don’t have this license and not intending to do.
How can I remove this, because when using Halion 7 standalone and for example 10 minutes later I want to open Cubase pro 13 i’m getting this message
Don’t have this on old setup where vstconnect pro isn’t installed into fx.



You can delete the components manually:

  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\Shared Components\VST Connect.dll
  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\Shared Components\vstconnect.dll

don’t find them in this directory ?
