I have had the same issues; Mac - Ventura 13.0
I have Cubase Artist 9 installed and needed to upgrade the OS to Ventura., because the green went white when dragging items in Cubase.
Ok, so I committed and purchased Cubase Artist 12, did everything with the download manager. Try to run it for the first time, then I get the Safe Mode - ‘application was terminated unexpectedly’ message. None of the safe mode options solve it.
So I read all of the above thread to try and solve the issue myself and went to try this from Arne:
Please try the following:
Rename the folder
/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Components/ to
Then start Cubase 12 and check if it works.
However, there is no ‘Components’ folder there at all that I can even rename.
So; /Library/Application Support/Steinberg/ (no folder)
Could somebody help? I’ve just paid quite a lot of money to upgrade to the latest Cubase and I can’t run it. I don’t know what else to do.
