Cubase 8 crashing when loading Play (from East West) VST

While I was using Cubase 8, I changed the buffer size from 1024 to 128. Blue screen followed and the whole thing crashed. I was using the East West vst Play in this project.
Since then, everytime I try to load a project with the EW VST, Cubase crashes. If I create a new project there’s no problems until I try to load the Play VST; then it crashes.
I tried a clean reinstall of Play but it didn’t work. I don’t know what to do at this point.
I’m on Windows 10
Here is my crashdump file.
Cubase 64bit 2023.3.21 21.13.dmp (1.4 MB)

Thank you.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Cubase 8.0.0 is definitely not the latest Cubase 8 update. Install the latest one, please. Also make sure the plug-in is up to date, please.
