BUG: 6.0.1 "Serious Error" Crash choosing File/Quit

I worked on a project for several hours without issue tonight. After saving for the last time, choosing Export->Audio Mixdown, and previewing the mix in SoundForge, I returned to Cubase and chose File/Quit.

As everybody knows, it takes a while to shut down. During that process, after all of the project windows had closed, Cubase gave me one of those horrible dialogs that says a Serious Error has occurred and that I should save my project under another name. Of course, the project had been saved prior and exiting did not prompt me to resave.

Here’s the crash for Steinberg folks:


Cubase6.exe Version 6.0.1 Build 270 - 20.3.2011 22:15

Timestamp is 4d6c1182 (Mon Feb 28 13:20:02 2011)
C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 6\Cubase6.exe

Exception code: C0000005 ACCESS_VIOLATION

I will report back if I have problems opening or working with the project tomorrow. I sure hope that isn’t the case as I have a vocalist coming to record Tuesday.

Others are having crashes on exit:

Fwiw I get a BSOD - I’ve had to revert to Cubase 5.52 for the moment.

I started that other thread. That was just a hang, with no warning of a corrupt project. This is much more serious v

So… worked on the same project last night. No crashes. No corrupt project issues. Whew. Still, something is amiss.
