Cubase 5 Loading Problem

Hi everyone,

I had tried using Cubase 5 in Windows XP once, and I had this weird problem. Every time I tried opening it, it wouldn't go past the loading screen. It just shows like loading different VSTs all the time, but I could leave it there 2 hourst straight and still show it's loading. It never opens.

I didn't give it much thought then, because I was considering to buy a new PC and use Win 7. Well, I did. And guess what. The same problem again. Anyone knows anything about that?

Is it a legit version of Cubase? If not that can be a problem. If it is legit then it sounds like you have a plug that is creating a problem. Try putting all non Cubase plugs into another folder so Cubase isn't looking for it and then see if she starts.

Hi again, thanks for the quick answer. Yes, it is legit, and after some research I found out about what seems to cause the problem. Posting link:

Cubase.net .:::. View topic - Cubase 5 crash during startup [SOLVED]

And explaining real quick so you don't have to do the reading. For some reason, Cubase plugins search was set to a very generic location, like C:\ or something. That way, it would go on searching every bit of the hard drive for hours. I tweaked the registry value mentioned in the post above, setting the VST folder to C:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase 5\VSTPlugins and the problem just dissapeared. From what I understood while searching, this is a very common problem so keep it in mind anyone who might come upon it.
