[SOLVED] Windows 10 update = no valid license found.

Post by jon_blak » Wed Feb 10, 2016 10:13 am

*SOLVED*
Cubase = up to date
Windows 10 = up to date
e-licenser = up to date (and maintenance done)

open cubase
no valid license, the program will quit now
click: start license activation
enter activation code

that is where the wheels fall off.
original activation code is for Cubase Elements 7, and I grabbed the free upgrade to 8.
can't generate new e-licenser serial to get a fresh activation for 8.
now the control center is telling me to repair it, and i can't.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated!
thanks in advance.

I had tried this, my problem starts when I have to:
'Enter the new Soft-eLicenser number that has been created on your new system'

i don't have a new number, it is still the same number at my end, so the reactivation halts.
on my PC, the eLicenser is totally ok. Cubase 8 license is 'full'.

OK,
out of curiosity i also did a 'right click, properties, run as administrator' on the cubase .exe
and everything is fine.

so, run both e-licesnser and cubase as admin, problem solved.

Jon_blak, UDAMAN! " run both e-licesnser and cubase as admin, problem solved". Saved me loads of time and frustration...I have no idea why that is a required step after upgrade, but so be it.

The following steps will help you to successfully start Cubase (this worked for me).

Make sure that:

- You have installed the latest drivers (e.g. Steinberg Yamaha). Uninstall the old drivers first. After installing the latest drivers restart your computer.
- You have installed the latest version of your eLicenser Software. Uninstall the old one first.
- Run eLicenser as Administrator. Run a maintenance task.
- Run Cubase as Administrator.

Now everything is fine. You do not have to re-activate anything.

...and what exactly is the message you're seeing, when did the issue start?

Also you might get more answers in the Cubase 9 issues forum.
