Cubase 12/13 Quits on Booting Files, 11 is ok

Hey all, Mac Pro 2019 running MacOS Ventura. Only some 3rd party plugins - mostly Kontakt, FabFilter and Melodyne. Certain files won’t boot unless I fall back to Cubase 11. It’s a big template, but most tracks are disabled by default. The files do boot under safe mode always. It seems like certain sample libraries within Kontakt might be the culprit, but it’s tough to narrow down. Lotsa unexpectedly quitting here! Attached is a log file - it happens all the time though - ugh! Thanks so much for any help!!!

Quick followup…Cubase 12 also crashes with this file. Cubase 11 fine. 12 seems to point to Kontakt 7?

Please, make sure, you have the latest Kontakt 7.7 installed.

Reported to Steinberg. Thank you.

Yeah…I’ve got 7.71 installed… :frowning:
