Error with Padshop 2 presets on application load


Am getting this error when loading Cubase 10.5.20 after I updated to this version today:

I don’t use Padshop 2 so do not mind removing it or its presets yet cannot work out how to?

Any help would be much appreciated.


Hi and welcome,

Are you using Cubase 10 or Cubase 10.5? If you are using Cubase 10, did you have Cubase 10.5 installed (by accident or as a Trial)? Padshop 2 is part of Cubase 10.5 license (and installer) but not part of Cubase 10.0.x.

I have the same problem and YES I had 10.5 installed by accident. I deleted it and downgraded but I cant figure out what is remaining that causes this message and I certainly don’t want to do a clean re-install because of this since I have to use Cubase for my business every day. Is there a workaround or something I can delete do get rid of this message at the start-up?

Ah, and I already de-installed Padshop 2 ofc.
