I had tons of problems when I upgraded to C10. Missing content, constant crashing, some VST’s not showing up properly and you name it.
So here is what I did:
My upgrade path was C7->C7.5->C8->C9.5-C10 I just had so much problems with missing content etc. i realized it’s best to do everything from clean and just leave C10 on my computer.
- Uninstall everything using cubase uninstallers
- Run CCleaner and clean registry
- Check if any folders are left behind @
Delete folders named “Steinberg” from these two locations. Make sure to back up some setting files if needed! But do not copy content location files.
Also remove steinberg folders from any other install location place. Just make sure not to delete accidentaly any 3rd party plug-ins at the time so you don’t have to re-install them.
Run CCleaner one more time to be sure
Download installation files and install everything you need. In my case C10, Halion 6, and Ultimate VST1+ and some steinberg expansion packs for Padshop Pro
Install Everything, C10 first. Then VST plugins starting from the OLDEST to the newest. In my case, I installed Halion 6 in the end.
9.1. MAKE SURE when installing you tick the box “Install for all users” if you have that tick box in your installer. As there are differences in earlier cubase installers. C10 automatically installs content for ALL USERS. There is no tick box available anymore.
Launch C10 and hope everything goes allright.
This was my cure for problems. Now everything work fine, even better than in 9.5 and even got a performance boost. Sure, there is lots to do. it took me almost 6 hours, most of the time went downloading files. But I am now glad I did it.
