Cubase Elements 9 won't load - "Initializing: Scanning VST3 Plugins.."

As per title, for some reason Cubase isn't loading today, is anyone familiar with this problem?

thanks in advance

I experienced something like this today. Normally, the PC is offline, so I enabled the LAN and restarted Cubase. This stopped the insufferably long VST3 scanning that had reared its head. Disabled the LAN again and all is well. I have to assume it was looking for a handshake of some kind. Maybe this will work for you. It's not a complete shot in the dark. I just don't feel like writing a novel about what was probably behind the issue.

Same here. To test, you can take the Waveshell files out of your VST search path. That will tell you for sure if it is Waves causing the issue.

I've done the same thing as above, and it has always fixed my issue.

Here for the gear
 

I had this issue and had to manually locate anything waves and delete it. Then in Cubase had to remove the vst paths and re-scan. Finally fixed the issue.

Is there a way to do a clean remove of Waves. I really bugs me when I uninstall a program that it leaves behind all it's junk. I know companies like hauppauge offer a clean uninstall program you can download, really appreciate stuff like that.
