Trick to bypass Steinberg Hub during start-up

I like to install CB 7 on a new computer. Again i have problems with starting CB7 (crash after Steinberg Hub becomes visible). From the installation on my first computer i remember there a trick to bypass the Hub during start-up of CB.
I use a MacBook and an iMac IOS 10.8.4.
Can’t find it anymore. Can someone send me the trick?


Was it this?

Launch first & then hold the keys down: ctrl, alt ,shift

Well, this is no trick but just unclick “Use Steinberg Hub” in the preferences.

The big trick is to remove hubservice.bundle from


(you have to “Show Package Contents” of the Cubase 7 app.)
