I thought the 6.5.3 update would finally solve the problem, but it didn’t. Is this error going to continue with C7? I’m starting to wonder.
SOLVED! I originally had removed all Automap files on my C:drive (including the registry), but no dice. In a last ditch effort I manually searched again and found 1 automap file that never showed up in the search…because it was had a parenthesis around it like this: (Automap). Evidently the parenthesis stopped the windows search from spotting it…which must be a Windows 7 bug or something. All is well now!
I still find it strange that the first version of Cubase 6 had no problems originally with this, but it was only the first C6 update and everything since that did not like the (Automap) file.
