Could this driver be better written, or more stable? Or removed/disabled? It is the number one cause of BSOD on my PC. In fact, the only cause at this stage. This has nothing to do with my PC setup. I have had this problem on all my PCs and with various sound-card setups with various versions of Cubase. Currently running pro 8.5
Why care, I don’t use this driver?
Well, the problems is that the generic ASIO driver decides to load instead of the one you truly wants and wreaks havoc on your computer anytime there is a ASIO conflict. (loading other programs with ASIO, not releasing driver, or incorrect parameters, or external interface was not turned on etc etc.)
The results is MOSTLY bluescreens which means restart and lost work.
Obviously I use another ASIO driver, like anyone who is serious about cubase is doing as well. My point is, nobody really wants this driver and it is not good. Hell, the Asio4all does way way better than this driver.
I have finally managed to disable this generic driver. I simply renamed the asioglld.dll (found in program files/steinberg/asio) and the driver “doesn’t exist”.
Wouldn’t it at least be an idea to be able to disable the driver without having to either do surgery in the regedit or the above solution (which works fine - you can always rename the file back it you want it again.)
In any case, here you have a solution if it bothers you. It really bothered me. Now there are no more bluescreens.
