Situation: Cubase Pro 9.5 running smoothly.
Updated all my NI plug-ins after some time.
Started Cubase, upon scanning it blacklisted Maschine 2 (which I used extensively before without problems and to the best of my knowledge was not updated in my big NI download session).
Went to plug in manager and undid the blacklist of Maschine 2 to see if it would work. Cubase immediately crashed (like instantly), and now crashes on every attempt to re-open it.
QUESTION: How do I blacklist Maschine 2 or force a complete re-scan of the plug-ins (which itself would blacklist Maschine 2 again) without opening Cubase Pro 9.5 (since trying to do so now crashes).
SUB-QUESTION: Anyone know why Maschine 2 would now be blacklisted by Cubase? I am running the most recent version of Cubase Pro and I believe the most recent version of Maschine 2.
