been trying to track down an irritating crash on exit bug on windows.
basically it’s this:
Thought it worth starting a new thread now I’ve tracked down the cause.
IF YOU ENABLE REWIRE IN A PROJECT IT TRIGGERS A CRASH ON QUITTING CUBASE
(menu > Studio > Rewire > Rewire Setup…)
You can spot the crash (actually 2 crashes) in the windows application event log - you won’t see this on the desktop.
Crash on exit…so what !?! - well it means a lot of things go wonky. It means that your preferences don’t get saved on exit, along with rewire status (so it ‘seems’ to fix itself ), control room setting, recent file list, various presets…and lots of other things. Very irritating and gives lots of odd problems. Deleting preferences ‘seems’ to fix this but all you are doing is disabling rewire and ‘masking’ the problem not curing it.
I get the crash with rewire set to:
So I don’t think it’s manufacturer specific.
Also I don’t get the crash with Nuendo 10 / Cubase 10 or Cubase 10.5.0 - This is NEW behaviour in 10.5.10. So I believe the problem is the new version NOT my system.
btw - thanks SB for not bothering to answer ANY support tickets or emails so I had to figure this out myself. Usual level of SB support. You think they would at least want to meet you half way…nope, silence is golden.
anybody else confirm ? You will need to check your event log AFTER enabling rewire and quitting cubase
