Cubase 12 Mutes all tracks in project on startup

When I save a project, I save it with all but one track muted. But when I reload the same project, All my tracks are muted. this is consistant even if I save a project under a different name. Is there something with the settings, or is it a glitch?

We need more information about the project to say something useful.
Can you provide some screenshots?

Not sure how a screen shot will help. Its just all channels are muted when I open the project but when I saved the project the channels are not muted. It would just be a screenshot of muted tracks and unmuted tracks
