Everybody else is complaining about Cubase starting up in safe mode when it shouldn’t I have the opposite problem: I need it to start up in safe mode but I can’t get it to do that.
I hold down the Ctrl-Shift-Alt keys and then start Cubase on Windows. It asks me whether I want Cubase Pro or Cubase Artist. I click on Pro (I have a license for it) and it continues to start up normally. Never brings up the safe mode dialog. I can force the safe mode dialog by brutally killing the program in Window’s task manager. Next time I start it, it will come up in safe mode.
It makes no difference whether I use the left or right Ctrl key or the left or right Shift key. Using the laptop keyboard or an external keyboard doesn’t make a difference either.
What can I do to bring up safe mode reliably?
