Cubase 6 Artist won't start up (Stuck loading VST Plugins)

Post by Latiro »

Hello everyone,

The title pretty much says it all. :(
I just returned from a 3-month trip outside of Europe, and when I started my home computer again I found out that Cubase won't startup anymore. It is stuck when trying to initalize my VST 2.0.
I'm absolutely clueless to where that might come from. Did I maybe accidently delete some important configuration file?

I'm very grateful for every piece of advice! I have spent the last 3 months without music and I'm dying to play piano and compose again. :)

Thank you,

Nicolas

I would start by hiding all third party plug-ins from Cubase. Then, add them little by little and see if one of them is causing trouble.

Aloha L +1 to what jaslan posted.

If you have many many many many plugs
here is another approach:

1-Remove them all and divide them in half.

2-Install one of the halves. If Artist is now working properly,
you now know the prob is in the other half.

3-Keep doing the half by half thang and you will soon find it.

Much understood. Sending much Aloha on that.
