URGENT! 9.5 doesn’t start. Crash on GUI Resources. What to do?

Please share the whole crash dump file to be able to resolve it.

I hope this helps. I attached a link to a memory dump windows wrote while Cubase crashed.



Does Cubase make a crashdump file? You can find it in Documents/Steinberg/crashdumps. It would be better to get a Cubase crash file, please. Thanks

Oh ok, didn’t know about that file.

Cubase9.5.exe Version 9.5.0 Build 55 - 23.11.2017 19:56

The file containes the same error for every time I try to start Cubase.


Again, please share the whole file.

As I already said, thats all it contains. But see for your self:



What about this error dump?

I fixed it. I needed last update for Win7
BTW I hate 16 inserts! Good DAW mixer is when you see inserts and sends. It gives you opportunity to work fast. I’ve been using 8 inserts for 15 years. And I want fixed amount of inserts. Beginners pushed Steinberg to create more inserts which is nonsense. The less processing the better sound. Anyway if they want 250 inserts give them option to choose between 8 and 16. Steinberg as always shock me.

That’s a 32bit nvidia videodriver DLL.
system pecs please, os version, driver versions etc.

I’m glad it works on your side, now.

You can show Inserts and Sends at the same time in the MixConsole (window, not lower zone). You can also display just used Insert slots (what is the default settings), Cubase doesn’t force you to show all of them, this is your own decision. So you have an option.

More Insert slots was a long time freeze request from many many customers.

Has anyone with app/system crashes ever tried to repair/reinstall .NET 4.X framework? Wasn’t there a longer time ago bugs related to it?

If there is NVIDIA involved, try to experiment with different driver versions, please.
