Cubase 11 Crash - New install

Just rebuild the PC - Windows 10 - i7 processor - new clean Cubase 11.0.3 install.
Latest project crashes Cubase while loading. Run again without preferences and everything is fine. I put the preferences back (Saffire AISO and Preferences) and it’s all good.
What in the preferences would cause it to crash and why are the preferences always an issue? It’s been this way since I started with Cubase 5. Maybe the next update would fix the issues.
Here are 2 crash dumps…
