transport control on midi keyboard stops working

I find I have to load the file everytime for my midi controller transport to function. Is there a problem why it isn’t saving this setting?

Do you change your hardware? Motherboard? CPU? Installed hardrive?

Neh, as stated in my post, I haven’t installed any soft/hardware or changed anything at all.

I don’t know what it is, but it’s not that mp3 encoder. Have you got/had a Cubase Artist license perhaps? That always comes with a trial of the mp3 encoder, the full version has a permanent license for it.
