Cubase 8.5 freezes on Startup Flash screen.

Post by banjo1 »

Windows 10
AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core 4.01Ghz
16 GB
Installed on SSD drive.
Cubase 8.5 Pro Re-installed.

On Cubase Startup Splash screen starts up with "Intializing VST 2.x Plugin->Padshop" Never gets any further...

I saw in previous posts to access appdata and rename Cubase 8.5 folders... But this makes no difference.

There does not seem to be any credible work around for this issue... I see lots of complaints, but no one seems to have a solution that works.

If I use Task Manager and kill the program, then try to start it up again.. Nothing happens. I see it running in Task Manager shows its running but it nothing appears. The only solution is to do a full reboot.. Then when I start it up again. I'm back to the splash screen.
PC: 8 core AMD Windows 10 Mac: Mini (Sierra) Cubase Pro 9.0.20 (Also Live 9.7, Reason 9.5 .. I cannot decide which I like best! )

I know this thread is old, but did you ever manage to get this working somehow?
This is happening to me on a fresh install today.
