I bought Cubase Pro 8, but it won’t run on my system (which ran 7.5 and earlier versions no probs). It has to do with Windows Aero / DWM. (Error msg: “DWM composition is not running; please switch to an Aero theme”).
I appear to have everything running that should be (previously had a lot of services turned off to maximise CPU & RAM availability for the DAW). I’ve enabled DWM and Aero themes run. I’ve run through what I could find on Google to make registry changes associated with Aero / DWM that others have experienced, and have tried new, old and medium vintage graphics drivers.
The system specs meet what Steinberg stipulates - Windows 7 64bit on 2.7GHz 6 core AMD Phenom II X6 1045T with 16Gb RAM, 1Gb ATI Radeon HD5570 graphics and external Steinberg MI4 soundcard. Direct X 11 and WDDM compliant.
Has anyone had a similar issue and been able to resolve?
