Crash after opening a second project and hitting Activate

Reported to Steinberg. Thank you.


Do you use Dropbox or similar service? Do you store your project directly to Dropbox (or similar)?

Hi Martin,

I have a Dropbox account. I do not normally use it for project storage. Why do you ask?


Do you use the Dropbox application? Is it running all the time, please?

There are 3 more exactly the same crashes here on the forum (as far as I know, so far). Some kind of cloud drive option seems to be the same for all the cases here.

I do not use Dropbox on my DAW computer. I even have the Microsoft Windows built-in cloud storage account disabled. Sorry.

The -only- ‘networky’ thing I have on my DAW is that I often use a plug called MagicAB to listen to reference tracks on my mix buss. And those reference tracks are on a shared drive. But I doubt it’s on the projects that have crashed.
