Installed Cubase 8.5 and now can’t double click to open project files!
Worked in C8.
Also I can’t get file associations to work, like right clicking and use “open with …”.
Nothing happens and I don’t even get the C8.5 icon visible in the dialog.
I can open files with CTRL+O but that’s a pain in the workaround!
Must be a system depending glitch, works fine here. Double clicking a project in explorer opens Cubase 8.5 and the project.
And I have Cubase 7 , 7.5, 8, and 8.5 installed.
Just correct the file associations, that should work.
I guess that could happen if you install or update from a user account without admin rights.
Little tip, if you use Chrome or Internet Explorer to download, start the update from within the browser. That way it will start the update with admin rights, as it is a child process of the browser that always runs with admin rights anyway.
It’s just a guess, as I install anything I trust with full admin rights to ensure that it has permission to alter system settings.
ckon is correct that doesn’t open the project either. The workaround is to use either “Recent Projects” or “Open Project” under the File menu in Cubase.
Windows tip (for after this gets fixed): If you pin Cubase to the Windows Taskbar, then you can right click on the Cubase icon and it will give you Windows’ list of recent projects. The Windows’ list differs from Cubase’s recent projects list in 2 useful ways - you can remove projects from the Windows’ list and it also lets you pin projects to the top of the list (right click on project name for both features). However for a project to appear in this list it has to have been opened at least once from explorer and not internally via Cubase’s File menu.
