Cubase 7 Install Problems with Windows 10

Hello,

I’ve just tried installing Cubase 7 on my laptop which runs on Windows 10. I tried installing with my original Cubase 7 DVD (which I’ve been running on my PC with Windows 7), it went through the whole installation process but came up with an error message towards the end, and the programme doesn’t appear to have installed. Just looked for the latest Cubase 7 update on the Steinberg website, and it only appears to support up to Windows 8.

Any advice please?

Many thanks!

you are not the only one with this problem. look around in this forum and in the internet. even Steinberg itself, have already acknowledged, that there are massive problems with Cubase, Nuendo, WaveLab and other Steinberg-Products. i think the best solution for your problem is to downgrade to Windows 8.1, 8 or 7.

That’s really helpful - thanks for the links! I have to say I’m very surprised that Windows 10 isn’t better supported by Steinberg software, and hopefully this is something they’ll work towards rectifying…
