Random cubase crashes

My first post in this forum :slight_smile:

I have recently upgraded to cubase 8 artist, looking forward to updrading it further to Pro.
The problem is, ever since I purchased this version of cubase, the software often crashes and forces me to go back to my older cubase, cubase 5 pro.
I’ve tried to mix several things on my cubase 8, yet very often it fails under different error messages such as “a serious problem occured, we suggest that you close cubase and save project under a different name” or random crashes after activating some plugin, loading a project or just loading cubase. The worst thing: recording with annoying ticking noises.

Can anyone guess what seems to be the problem?

Hi and welcome,

Most often these crashes are plug-in related. Most probably you are using some old incompatible plug-is in your project (made in Cubase 5). Make sure, your plug-ins are up-to-date, please.
