I have been running Cubase Pro 10 for some while I then purchased an upgrade to pro 10.5 and have always had a problem launching the program, it fails at ARA services, I have just installed the thirty day trial of Cubase Pro 11 and it fails at the same place, even if I turn off third party plugins and preferences.
I’m running an Apple Mac Pro (Late 2013) - OS Catalina 10.15.7 (19H2) - 3.5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 - 32 GB 1866 MHz DDR3 - AMD FirePro D500 3 GB
Could you share a *.crash file, please?
Mac: macOS Console utility > User Reports folder or Crash Reports in macOS 10.15 (or ~user/Library/Logs/Diagnostic Reports).
All crashes are very same, but none of them is Cubase or any plug-in related:

Would you know the cause for this as Cubase Pro 10 and earlier versions all work OK?
Does Cubase Pro 11 work with the latest Mac OS system, in which case would you recommend updating to that?
I’m sorry, I have no such a deep knowledge about macOS.
I’m confused, because the X86 refers to the 32-bit instruction set, but there are no 32-bit instructions in macOS 10.15. And moreover, there is the (64-bit) next to the X86.
Often, this points to some memory issues. Could you test your Mac Pro system (Memory Test), please?
I’ve done a complete check and my computer tells me “No issues found Reference Code ADP000” so I presume my computer’s not at fault.
On one hand, I’m glad for this. On the other hand, I have no idea, where to continue with the investigation, sorry.
Thanks for your time Martin, do you work for Steinberg?
If so I’d be very grateful if this problem could be explored more as I’ve always been a Steinberg fan and have never had problems like this before. I’m, very much, liking the look of what Cubase Pro 11 offers.
Outside of all that would you have any idea where I should look to try and find an answer?
I’m sorry, there is nothing to explore from Steinberg, I would say, if no Steinberg product is mentioned in the crash thread.
But you can try to rise a ticket via the official Steinberg support.
OK thanks again Martin I’ll try raising a ticket via the official Steinberg support page.
Have a great life.
