I upgraded to Cubase 6 from Cubase Studio 4 some time ago. Everything worked pretty well.
However, when I tried to open Cubase 6 yesterday, my PC froze. I mean by this that there is no error message, not even the (infamous) blue screen: just a complete freeze of the whole PC forcing me to hard reboot (even “control-alt-delete” doesn’t work).
I tried many different things:
Updated the eLCC: this caused several freezes as well and I had to manually delete all remaining eLCC files before it worked again. Now the eLCC works fine (see attached screenshot). Note that my Cubase 6 license was automatically upgraded to Cubase 6.5 (which I didn’t request) - Is this causing the issue ?
Uninstalled Cubase 6 and tried to re-install it. Same issue: the installation process just freezes (no error message).
Re-installed Cubase Studio 4 and this worked ok, but when I tried to re-do the upgrade to Cubase 6, I had the same freeze issue. Note that when I uninstalled Cubase Studio 4 again, a message stated that the installation of Cubase 6 64bit was suspended !? (See attached screenshot)
Apologies for my late response. I was abroad.
Thanks for your assistance.
I have (manually) deleted all Cubase related files. This didn’t help.
I also run MSI Installer and it couldn’t correct the problem.
I contacted the Steinberg Support service but they haven’t yet responded …
