HALion SE Crashes Elements 10.5.20

If HALion SE is included with Cubase Elements, why won’t my updated elements program run? The program hangs at initializing HALion SE, then quits. In the crashdumps folder I find I find the file “Cubase LA AI Elements 10.5” which contains the following:

Cubase LE AI Elements 10.5.exe Version 10.5.20 Build 179 - 12.7.2020 20:01

Timestamp is 5eb10b6d (Tue May 5 02:45:01 2020)
C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase LE AI Elements 10.5\Cubase LE AI Elements 10.5.exe

Exception code: C0000005 ACCESS_VIOLATION
Fault address: 1A20FBFB 01:0357EBFB C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\Shared Components\HALion Sonic SE\HALion Sonic SE.dllBytes at CS:EIP:

Over and over and over again!

This is the second time I’ve tried installing the update. Looks like Steinberg has done nothing to fix the problem.

Anyone find a work around? (I’m going back to 10.5.anything before 10.5.20).
