Initializing: Video output devices...!SOLVED...sort of

Hi all,
If this is a known issue then excuse me (haven’t been on this board for a while). Every time CB6 loads, it goes very fast through the initializing process, everything just fly’s by (SSD,s can make a difference… :wink: ) but then it sits for a full 3/4 mins chewing on “Initializing: Video output devices”, I don’t have any of them in my system, what is it actually initializing and is there a way to “bypass” this function…can’t be my graphics card surely. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Apart from that, I am enjoying CB6 a lot, haven’t come across any downside yet :smiley:

have you heard back on this one yet?

I’m having the same problem. CB6 loads fine until “Video output Devices” starts to load. Thin it’s stuck for like 3-6 minutes. After CB6 loads and works fine. Is there a way to shut this off or bypass it. I’m not using CB^ for video’s just Audio. Thanks for the help.

No, I have not resolved this issue yet, even though I have tried re-installing several times-it does not go away. It is not a huge problem, but it is annoying having to wait for it to “initialise video output devices” for 3/5 mins when I have none on my system…

Which garphics cards and motherboards are you using? Have you tried installing the “standard vga adapter” driver?

Graphics cards is a Nvidia GTX 460, motherboard is an ASUS Commando, no I haven’t tried installing the standard VGA adapter, does it support 1920 x 1200?

Nope, doesn’t support 1920x1200 and windows only reports 8 MB graphics memory so you wouldn’t want to run it permanently, but if Cubase launches without delay then at least you know where to start looking.

The guy in this thread found a way to disable the Cb video engine…not sure if this could help?
Obviously no good if you need video support.

I tried removing the videoengine.dll, and lo and behold, it worked…so now it starts up in just 30 seconds or so, no hold ups.
Thanks to Grim for the information :sunglasses: :sunglasses: :sunglasses: :sunglasses: :smiley:
