This is keeping me busy all day and I’m fed up with it, so here goes:
Today I did a complete clean install of Windows 10 Anniversary update (Windows 10 Pro x64 OS Build 14393). From the official Microsoft Media Creation Tool I created a USB drive.
After the clean install of Windows, I installed the full 64bit Cubase 8.5.20. And to be clear, I did the above twice.
Now, even after clean installing, Cubase is totally broken. Either it hangs at the load screen when loading VST2.x plugins like Padshop, or it hangs after opening a template project. No 3rd party plugins have been installed yet, just Cubase Pro 8.5.20 with the additional content from the 9GB installer.
I’ve updated the eLicenser Control Center to the latest version, I’ve deleted the preferences but nothing makes Cubase work!
I’m in desperate need for a solution here, as I need to finish some projects soon.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
