Which versions of Cubase are we talking about here? Did you manage to activate Cubase 9? Did you update the eLicenser Control Center?

Where did you get this Cubase 9 upgrade? The activation code looks like this:

0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000

Make sure that you're not getting "i" mixed up with "1" and "o" mixed up with "0". Also click the eLicenser Control Center's "Maintenance" button first.

No, the license in your USB-eLicenser dongle is completely independent from any Cubase installations. Upgrading should always work for as long as you have the latest eLicenser Control Center installed and you picked the right upgrade.

You still haven't mentioned where you got this Cubase 9 upgrade from. Do you mean Cubase 9.5? The upgrade should still work, but it's not possible to buy Cubase 9 anymore.
