Cubase is freezing quite often at the moment, either when I’m loading into a track, or doing other tasks such as rendering in place. When this happens, and I go to task manager, cubase 8.5, show details, analyse wait chain, I see that SYNSOPOS.EXE is listed as the process which is causing the freeze. When I disable this process Cubase unfreezes, but then I get an error saying:
DCOM connection to program “Synsopos.exe” failed. Error: The RPC server is unavailable.
When Cubase is frozen, I can only end it by using task manager. After this, if I try to open Cubase again, it won’t open, but will appear in task manager under the ‘background processes’ section. The only way I can get Cubase to open again after forcing it to close is by ending the process called ‘protected object server’. If I do this then Cubase opens as normal (but will still suffer with crashes).
I have tried resetting my preferences and uninstalled/reinstalling the elicencer control centre.
Any help is very much appreciated.
