Crashing on loading certain projects - how to debug

There are some Cubase projects which have started to cause Cubase to crash out on loading. I suspect that I might need to re install a plugin, but I want to make sure that this is the case and find out which one.

Cubase creates a dmp file, but his is not human readable, so I cannot scan it for any correlation between which projects crash. Is there a way to read them or generate useful data?

I can disable all 3rd party plugins after the crash. If I do this, how do I subsequently re enable all 3rd party plugins?

Just in case anyone can help, I have uploaded a couple of dump files.

Yes, you can open the .dmp files in WinDbg (free to use).

The first dump file points to Kontakt 5 as the culprit. The second—Amplitube 5.

Regardless of what you learn, you should update to 12.0.60
