I was given a warning only once and since then I have not seen it. The warning said to change my screen settings to use an Aero Theme.

I changed back to an Aero Theme and Cubase started, np. Prior to changing to an Aero Theme (something to do with display settings) it would not start and crashed.

Steinberg states that from 10.5 forward only Windows 10 is supported. I have not upgraded to 10.5 because of this.
