With a Cubase project open that contained only one audio file, and the Retrologue and Groove Agent plugins, I got this message. (See attachment) I had walked away from my computer and left with this project open. When I got back about an hour later the “Groove Agent has caused the following error…” message was waiting for me.
BTW, I was not connected to the Internet or any other devices. I had turned off the connection to this computer using my router.
Cubase was frozen but the task manager still showed it as running. It also left no crash dump file. I then shut down the computer, restart, reinstalled my Midisport MIDI driver, and then reinstalled the Yamaha USB driver, both of which are necessary and both are the latest versions. But even though I had restarted from a clean boot, the USB driver installer says that Cubase is still running and then won’t go through the installation. But according to the Task Manager, and every other indicator, nothing is running. So I shut down and restart again. Now the Yamaha USB driver installer works correctly. But since this crash when I launch Cubase, create an empty project, close it, and try to quit Cubase, it freezes (And does not leave crash dump file.) and again the entire proceedure starts over. Open task manager, it says Cubase is still running, shut down, reinstall drivers, reboot, launch Cubase, create empty project, close empty project, try to quit, Cubase freezes… This has happened multiple times even after updating every driver on this computer.
So what does this error message mean? Is there a solution to this problem?
