cubase LE AI Elements 9 has stopped working

I can open Cubase, I can create a project and record, mix etc. but when I try to open an existing project it crashes. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled Cubase but that didn’t fix it. support had me move my app data to give Cubase a fresh start but that didn’t fix anything either. I have a band trying to record 2 albums and it sucks that I’m having to delay until this is fixed because I can’t open any of the projects I’ve worked on with them. need this fixed ASAP. looks like it crashes once it starts to load the channels. I guess I should specify that I can open the projects as long as I don’t make them active, (which is pointless) the window says.

soooooooooo… lesson learned, don’t use questionable VST’s they crash your stuff. deleted my questionable copy of Slate VMR that i had gotten from a buddy. everything works great now. that you to steinberg support team for helping me with this quickly
