today I tried to install Cubase SX 3 on my new notebook with Win 7 64 bit professional. I didn’t get far - after clicking two or three buttons I got the message “You have some processes running on your Computer that block the installation” or sth. similar. It was recommended to reboot the system, which brought no success. I permanently deactivated WLAN, shut down the firewall and the antivirus programs and rebooted once more, again without success.
To my surprise, Steinberg Hypersonic 2 (which I bought 2005 with SX 3 and GA 2 in a bundle), could be installed without any problem and works flawlessly now, both standalone and as a VSTi. However, I had to skip the “autorun.exe” in the installation process (it aborted the installation the same way it did with SX 3 and GA 2) and HS only installed after I had clicked on the install.exe on the disk manually. Unfortunately this trick didn’t help with SX 3 and GA 2.
Any ideas what’s wrong here?
…oh, and a merry Christmas to everyone in the big Cubase universe!
