Hello Martin, can you help me with this issue??
Thank you in advance

Hi and welcome to the forum,

The crash is in the:


I don’t know, what this is. Are you sure, you didn’t set Cubase to search for plug-ins on the whole C drive?

Could you try in the Cubase Safe Start Mode [Disable preferences], please?

Thank you so much Martin

The software don’t even open and I tried all the preferences options as well, including Safe Start Mode.

When I try to open, the Cubase crashes at Initialize Video Player, I already installed all versions of Cubase Elements 11 :frowning:

@sirhan10 I think that might from your Intel graphics driver. Perhaps try updating that?

Yes, the driver and Windows 11 have been updated, I can’t open Cubase before and after that :frowning:
