Crash on file dialog

Hello, I’m rather well experienced Cubase user (since Atari till 10).

But now I have problem with my 8.5 on Mac. My Cubase started today to crash everytime when I open the file dialog. Cubase freezes for about 30 sec, and then crashes with:

Crashed Thread:        0  Dispatch queue:

Exception Type:        EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
Exception Codes:       KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x00007ffee0827b60
Exception Note:        EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY

Termination Signal:    Segmentation fault: 11
Termination Reason:    Namespace SIGNAL, Code 0xb
Terminating Process:   exc handler [2686]
Error Code:      0x00000004 (no mapping for user data read)

It happens ALL the time on File → Open…, File → Import → Audio File,

it doesn’t happen on File → Save as, File → Export → Selected Tracks, Export → Tempo Track, Export → OMF, choosing Location on Export Audio Mixdown.

I’m attaching three system log files. As you can see from log files, I’ve also tried upgrading C8.5.0 to C8.5.30 - didn’t help. I’ve also tried to load default preferences in preferences window - didn’t help.

Any ideas other than completely reinstalling the program? Does it look like Cubase trying open some not existing path? (Maybe network or external drive?) If so, how to change it?

I’ve deleted:

  • /Users/username/Library/Preferences/Cubase 8.5 directory
  • /Users/username/Library/Preferences/com.steinberg.*
  • /Users/username/Library/Preferences/Application Files/Cubase 8.5 directory

Still the application crashes. Any idea?
