Once in every 3 or 4 times loading Cubase 12 Pro (12.0.40), the main banner appears but hangs. It always seems to happen when the small text at bottom left (that rapdily changes as the various components load) reads “VST Mixer”.
When I open Task Manager (Windows 10), it shows Cubase as “not responding”, & clicking on the dropdown menu shows that Cubase itself is actually OK but the non-resposnsive bit is “licensing check”.
If I force close it & re-open, all is fine, although I get the initial pop-up box you get after a Cubase crash (telling you that a serious problem occured & giving various options for loading only basic settings etc.).
Anybody come across this before? I have a full Cubase 12 Pro license, & loading up Steinberg Activation Manager shows all is fine with the license.
