**** My apologies. I recreated this post in the Issues section as I should have originally. Mods- Feel free to delete this one. ****
I’m running Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Since installing the .3 update, Cubase throws the error message “Cubase 8 has stopped working.” When freezing a VSTi track. Since it’s STILL NOT POSSIBLE to close and restart cubase without fully rebooting the computer, I have to do just that. I think this issue differs from the prior thread(s) because I have no disabled tracks in any of my projects. I had a couple of muted VSTi tracks that also had the midi parts muted in the timeline. I unmuted all parts and unmuted the tracks (to verify) and got the same crash when trying to freeze a track. The track I tried to freeze was Uhe Hive with 2 inserts- Echobode followed by cableguys Volumeshaper. This problem did not occur in the .2 version, that I can recall. I’m running out of CPU and I need a solution to continue a number of projects in process.
