After around a 3 week break of using my laptop DAW, I tried to use Cubase 9.0.20 on my laptop.
It’s a Thinkpad T520 i7-2720QM 8 GB RAM Windows 10 Pro 64bit. Intel HD3000 and NVIDIA NVS 4200M
Only Steinberg plugins and VSTs used with TT EZdrummer 2 and Superior Drummer.
I tried to load various existing projects which previously worked fine, the load time was very slow, about 50% through the load time, the error Cubase 9 has stopped working appeared.
I tried to start new projects, after a few minutes same problem, Cubase 9 has stopped working.
I tried loading the existing projects and creating new projects in Cubase 8 and 8.5 which are installed on the laptop, same problem. I deleted preferences tried uninstalling and reinstalling Cubase 9 (all versions back to 9.0.20) still the problem was there. Tried switching between Integrated graphics and discrete graphics, Cubase still stopped working.
I did find a solution and that was to use a previous restore point which rolled back to Version 1703 OS build 15063.296
The error related to Version 1703 OS build 15063.413
Whilst I do not really use the laptop for internet, it now means I cannot connect to the internet at all as Windows 10 now automatically updates itself or at best you can delay the updates for 35 days.
Anyone else have any experiences to overcome this problem so I can update the OS in the future?
Maybe the mods can advise.
Thanks in advance.
