My settings were not transferred from cubase 11 to 12

Can anyone answer my question please?
When I open the project file on cubase 12 pro I find that I have lost all the VST instruments (the path to the dll folder is not included in 12) and preferences. I have not deleted cubase 11 pro and everything is fine in the project in cubase 11 pro. This problem did not happen when I upgraded from 10.5 to 11, all settings were transferred from 10.5 to 11, but this did not happen with 11 to 12. I don’t want to reset everything.
Also, if I want to install cubase on a different computer, how should I transfer these settings to another computer. As you know, it’s a huge pain to reset.

You can copy the whole preferences folder and name it accordingly to the target version

I suggest to implement a move feature in each new version to copy settings.
I also use a lot of presets which I miss in new installations


On Windows just delete “C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase 12_64” folder and run Cubase 12 again. It will transfer your old settings.


Great that works !!! thank you very much !!
