I have a brand new computer - i7, 16Gbytes RAM, 1.5TB main disk, Windows 7 64-bit - but whenever I run the 6.02 setup programme it aborts. I’ve downloaed it multiple times, I changed the properties to run in compatibility mode (XP with SP2) and checked run as an administrator.
Thanks Chris - I tried that before posting here (see above) as I did a search in Steinberg’s Knowledgebase. It’s odd - I have a brand new clean machine (I have not done any recording on it yet) which only has Steinberg and some Native Instruments applications installed.
As suggested, the patches can be extracted, ie the exe contains 3 main files, elicenser (you can download a newer version) included content (maybe you don’t need) and the patch itself which is only 5mb and is in msi/msp format so may run in a restricted environment, eg administrator rights
I recently installed a fresh Windows 7 64 on a new hard disk as a way of tidying up and extending the life of my old machine. The 6.02 patch refused to install for me twice - just exited. I went away to do something else, thinking that my hardware was getting really flakey. I came back late to realise I hadn’t reinstalled Cubase 6 - just my other Steinberg software. Very stupid of me, but there we go. (just a suggestion )
I’m new to Mac’s so I wouldn’t rule out user error here, but when I try to install the update I get the message “You need to have Cubase 6 installed”. It goes without saying that Cubase 6 is already installed so I’m not sure what the issue is.
I had inadvertently downloaded the wrong update as you’d suggested might be the problem. I had also made a schoolboy error of dragging the Cubase Icon out of the the applications folder, thinking I was just creating a desktop shortcut.
