How do I activate my bundled Cubase (LE, AI, etc) software?

If you’re having trouble activating your bundled copy of Cubase, follow the steps below:

  1. Install your bundled copy of Cubase.
  2. Open the eLicenser Control Center. On a Mac, this is found in the Applications folder. On Windows, this will be in Start > All Programs.
  3. When eLicenser opens, you’ll see your Soft-eLicenser number in the left-hand column. You’ll need this later.
  4. Open your web browser and go to www.steinberg.net.
  5. If you have a MySteinberg Account, sign in. If not, create one.
  6. Once you’re logged in, click Add Software.
  7. Next, select your version of Cubase.
  8. When it asks for your Soft-eLicenser number, enter the number from your eLicenser Control Center from step 3.
  9. You will receive the activation code for Cubase. Go back to the eLicenser Control Center and click Enter Activation Code at the top and enter the code given to you.
  10. That’s it!
