So, I upgraded to Cubase Pro 9.5 and, once again, all my configuration settings were discarded. [For the record, it takes me about eight hours to rebuild my Cubase installation from the ground up. INFURIATING!] I understand there are some shortcuts to rebuilding a Cubase installation by copying XML files from a prior version but, without explicit confirmation from Steinberg, this scares the hell outta me. In particular, some of the plugins I used in C9 are now on C9.5’s blacklist. What might happen when these are forced into Cubase by way of a rogue XML file is anybody’s guess. I can’t afford to take that risk.
So, is there any formal documentation from Steinberg that verifies for certain that it’s okay to copy PluginManager.xml (and any other configuration files, for that matter) from Cubase 9 to Cubase 9.5? This will save me many hours of work but only if it’s 100% safe.
Any input is appreciated.
