After having problems with both 10.5.10 and 10.5.11 and going back to 10, I updated recently to the lastest update 10.5.12.
After updating and running the new version for the first time, the software was scanning my plugins. It finished that process and then showed me a list of “blacklisted” plugins (all are loading perfectly fine in version 10) and then I click re-activate on the first plugin in that blacklisted list. As soon as I press re-activate, the software crashed. Then after this, every-time I go and try to open 10.5.12, the sofrware crashes right at the start when it scans for plugins, and doesn’t even generate a crash log so I could see which plugin or what it the cause for this.
Like I mentioned, version Pro 10.0.5 works perfectly fine, and so I’m back to that version as that is the last actually stable version that you can work with from Steinberg.
It’s quite dissappointing that I paid for the upgrade from 10 to 10.5 all the way back in November when it was released, and that we’re almost in March 2020 and I still didn’t use the new software for it’s lack of stability.
I can only hope Steinberg get it together and gives us a proper update that fixes all the issues so I could carry on with my work.
