Cubase 8.5.20 crash using Virus Ti2 Desktop

I have been running into a crash that happens regularly (or at least I can reproduce it on a regular basis).

When I load the VST it, in most cases, starts up without issue. However, after closing it, then opening it again, then attempting to select something (category, patch, etc.) it will crash Cubase.

The process I follow is:

  1. Open Cubase
  2. Load Virus rack instrument
  3. Select a patch
  4. Close the rack instrument (removing the instrument)
  5. Add the instrument back
  6. Select a patch or category

It can happen after one, two, or three closes but it will happen again. On occasion it will happen on startup but that is rare.

Here is my system information:
Windows 10 64bit (build 1607 14393.222), 64GB RAM, i7, 3.3GHz
Cubase Pro 8.5.20 build 169
Virus Ti2 Desktop 5.1.1, Audio 2.9.66, Midi 1.0.64GB

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software 3 or 4 times now. I have uploaded an animated gif showing what happens.

Anyone have any suggestions?
