Cubase will only let me open projects that are over a month old. Even if I create new projects, and attempt to “Import Tracks from Project,” it crashes.
I’ve tried removing all of the plug in .dll files from C: > Program Files > Steinberg > VSTPlugins.
It still crashes. I watch it carefully. When I attempt to open the project file, the last thing I see it try to load is “Stereo Out”.
Running Windows 10. I’m desperate. I’ve for a client waiting.
Hi and welcome to the forum,
Could you try in Cubase Safe Start More [Disable Preferences], please?
Shift + Cntrl + Command + Alt when the splash screen hit, and I chose “disable preferences.”
I’ve identified Kontakt as the problem. Cubase won’t open any program file with instances of Kontakt.
When I remove the Kontakt.dll file from the path where Cubase is looking for it, those program files open again.
I’m an orchestral producer and nearly every instrument I use is a Kontakt library. I’m hoping a clean uninstall/reinstall will work.
Anything I should know moving forward with this process? Native Access as a download and activation tool can be temperamental, and I want to make sure I reinstall it in a way that Cubase likes.
I did a full uninstall on Kontakt and a full reinstall, and the problem remains.
I would get in touch with NI support.
