Cubase elements 9 hang

Cubase elemnets 9 on my mac OS Sierra loads to a point of nearly starting then hangs forever and just won’t initialize?
Activation and Licensing is all good. Tried to load 9.01 update thinking this would sought the problem but could not load with an error report.
Have been on this for several days now and am losing valuable recording time. Please help.

i have same issue with prop9 at the moment. A week of frustration.
I have a support call in but no response yet.

i turned off mcafee - don’t meed it much on mac anyway
