Ok, I am reasonably fastidious when updating Cubase, having suffered at points in the past.
On installing the Upgrade (not the full app - shame on me) Cubase will NOT open - it crashes during loading. just after loading Media Bay.
So I downloaded the full 10.5.1 and installed that (after deleting the current non working one) = SAME THING - not loading.
So I deleted my prefs = SAME thing.
So I deleted it all, and went back to 10, the last I saved on another hard drive. = SAME THING - bombs out after Media bay load on the splash screen - somewhere around load media bay and ara on the splash screen.
Please - what can I do?
I now have no cubase.
something has affected it all.
I am pretty much thinking that this is it for me. Too much headache - but I want to fix this - need to really.
Thanks for all of that Martin. I had pretty much taken it back to a naked instalation, and found the issue to be a vst3 plugin, by adding my plugins bit by bit and waiting for it to fail - it did with my Melodyne vst3. No Idea why this should be, but it is now running. Will re-install melodyne at some point. But I have had enough of the problems with Cubase for now. Never as solid as logic, PT, Reaper. Bit I adore cubase. Much thinking to do.
