EZ Mix 2 - crashing Cubase 8.5?

I’ve followed the same steps in Cubase 8.5 that I had done in Elements 7 to get EZ Mix to work as a VST plugin, that is to move the .dll into the VST directory folder for Cubase. However, trying it both that way and adding the original EZ Mix folder as a directory in the Plug-In Manager results in Cubase freezing and crashing as soon as I have the window refresh. Is there something in 8.5 that’s not compatible? I downloaded the newest version of EZ Mix as well.

I’m running Windows 7
