When I exit Cubase 6.5 64bit it hangs and won’t shut down. With a fresh install of Win 7 64bit it worked fine. I tested it after each new program install (Cubase 6.5 retail disk, Eastwest Play 4.18, Slate VTM etc.) to rule out 3rd party conflicts and it worked and shut down fine (after a slight delay, usually).
Suddenly last night, it decided to stop shutting down again and I am forced to quit the program from the task manager.
I have also tried installing each update since 6.5 retail disk, to 6.5.5, but none of the updates effect this issue.
This happened before with fresh install of Win7 64bit a few days ago, and the only thing that solved it was another fresh install of Win7.
It appears that there is a conflict that is introduced in Windows update, possibly with .NET Framework 4.5 and one of it’s million updates.
This issue wasn’t present at all in Win8.1 running all of the same software (but there were a few other stability issues that motivated me go back to Win7).
This is very frustrating, as I have spent 4 days now trying to get Cubase 6.5 to work properly with Win7. It is killing my creativity.
