I’ve been using Cubase 7 (on Windows 7 64-bit) since it came out, but a few days ago I started experiencing problems.
When the problem first started and I tried to run Cubase 7 - either the 32-bit or 64-bit versions - Cubase hanged and my explorer crashed. When I moved my cursor to the task bar I got the ‘processing’ animation and nothing happened. Couldn’t click on anything and even the Task Manager froze when I started it. Had to restart every time.
After running it in safe mode, disabling my current preferences and updating to 7.0.1, Cubase now will load a project if I run it through its .cpr file, but explorer still crashes as soon as Cubase loads up.
Then if I alt-tab (can’t use icons in my taskbar) Cubase is able to keep working in the background, playing a track, but won’t show up on my screen.
I tried contacting my local support but the person I talked to said Cubase 7 has a lot of problems at the moment, and he recommends re-installing Cubase 6.5 and buying a new soundcard (he says using an ASIO driver might be causing it to fail, even though I’ve used it successfully since Cubase 6.5)
EDIT: I should add that I’ve done quite a bit of searching on the forum and tried installing a program called OpenSSL which was recommended.
I also updated the eLicenser software.
