Just tried updating Cubase 6 to 6.5 and am getting nowhere. Fatal execution error 1603 (whatever that means). Have tried re-installing and downloaded installer again but no good. I am running XP which up to now has been fine. Any ideas anybody please?
Strictly speaking XP hasn't been supported since C6, so you may struggle to get any support from Steinberg, but I've got 6.5 running happily on both W7 and XP with no problems. I know that doesn't really help, but it lets you know that XP isn't necessarily the issue.
Am glad I came across this post as I want to upgrade to 6/6.5 and upgrade my Halion too, both of which need Win7 according to Steinberg, but my soundcard, an ancient but trusty Frontier Systems Dakota/Montana (which gives me 32io) needs WinXP, so now am tempted to give it a go, and plonk Cub6 and Hal4 on and see what happens, and I suppose it is worth seeing if everything will run on Win7/32, if not buy a load of RME stuff to replace the Frontier Design interface - oh no, that's going to be costly!!!!!
