Error 0xc0000020


I wondered if anyone could help me as fairly new to Cubase and first time I’ve been in the forum. I use Cubase Artist 9 which has been working perfectly until today when I’ve tried opening it and receiving an error message " C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 9\graphics2d.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error." “Error status 0xc0000020”.

My thoughts have been to uninstall Cubase and reinstall, but I’m worried I will lose all the tracks which I’m half way through, of which there are a fair few.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks


Hi and welcome,

Do you use NVIDIA graphics card? If yes, try to update your NVIDIA driver, please.

Adam, I am having the same issue. Did you get it resolved? If so, how? Thnx, 4God
