Well, it s another night that Steinberg has kept me up until FOUR AM trying to install its poorly made and evidently broken and poorly thought out software.
I did a complete reset of my pc and I am trying to install Cubase and as usual Steinberg has made a simple task unbelievably complicated, difficult, hard and for the time being, impossible.
I have attempted to install Cubase 8.5 Pro about TEN ■■■■■■■ TIMES now. Each time I launch set up it tells me that Cubase 8.5 64bit Will be installed, but that it will make No Changes to HalionSonic SE, Groove Agent SE Acoustic Agent and Content.
I ACTUALLY NEED IT TO ALSO REINSTALL ALL OF THAT SHIT AS WELL, AND THE ■■■■■■■ SET UP WILL NOT LET ME DO IT!!! IT JUST WILL NOT LET ME DO IT! WTF???
NONE of that other stuff is really installed anymore, but for some fucked up reason (typical of Steinberg) the set up is finding it as installed on my machine and is not letting me reinstall it.
I have combed my hard drive for every possible ■■■■■■■ folder with Steinberg crap in it. I have deleted ALL OF THEM! I have restarted my computer TWICE and STILL, when I launch installer it says…
Cubase 8.5 64 bit Will be Installed
HalionSonic SE No changes
Groove Agent SE Acoustic Agent No Changes
Content No Changes
HOW DO I TELL THIS BOSSY AND PRESUMPTUOUS INSTALLER THAT I WANT TO MAKE MOTHER ■■■■■■■ CHANGES!!!
EVERY OTHER SOFTWARE I HAVE EVER INSTALLED WILL JUST REINSTALL ALL PARTS UNLESS YOU CHECK OFF THAT YOU DON’T WANT TO INSTALL THEM AGAIN.
But NOT Steinberg. If they didn’t do things in a non standard, convoluted and fucked up way, I guess it wouldn’t be Steinberg.
I really should know by now that if I am going to attempt to install ANYTHING made be Steinberg, that I need to take sedatives first, as it will be ALWAYS BE a convoluted, broken, fucked up and ANYTHING but smooth process! I PRAY for the day that Cubase is sold to a decent ■■■■■■■ company who actually thinks about its users.
PLEASE, anyone, tell me what the workaround is for Steinbergs SHITTY, BROKEN installer.
Sorry for the drama, but Steinberg and its bullshit have brought me to the end of my rope, ONCE AGAIN!
