So I upgraded from Cubase SX3 on XP Home to Cubase 5 on Windows 7. Groove Agent went in just fine. Then came Guitar Rig 2 and the mixer in Cubase won't load in any reasonable amount of time. Go make a cup of tea and a sandwich and enjoy both and it might have loaded, with all manner of things 'not mapped'. It was all fine before Guitar Rig 2 went back on the hard drive, any thoughts?
Guitar Rig loads fine on its own. When I change patches there are different types of hum. The trouble comes when Cubase becomes involved. Cubase without Guitar Rig is fine. When instances of Guitar Rig are involved, things are as previously described.
Also tried installing SX3 as well and the same trouble exists in both. I tried changing the properties of Guitar Rig's .exe file so that it opens as if in XP sp2 and that's no good either.
Wondering if there is some kind of security problem with the various dongulators or if Windows 7 simply doesn't like Guitar Rig 2. Tried XP Pro sp3 as well but there are all manner of troubles with drivers for the motherboard as it is fairly new.
