Cubase 13 VST loading crash

I have had multiple crashes opening a Cubase 13 project on Cubase 13 on Win11. In my case, Cubase is loading VSTs so it’s likely an old version of one of them (but which one?). I’d be grateful for any pointers to help me dive on the problem, even more grateful for robust, defensive code around VSTs during load time. I get that Steinberg can’t control what VST vendor software does, but there are means to recover that are more helpful than silently crashing.
