Hello my name is***** and I would be happy to assist you today.

I do not know about the inner workings of Cubase or what that error may be. That is a resource file that the program needs to work properly and by the name it seems it has something to do with the GUI of the program. If compatibility is the problem I would suggest you look into running Windows XP as a virtual machine via Virtual Box. That or just set your computer up to Dual Boot Windows XP and Windows 7.

A Virtual Machine if you are not familiar, allows you to run another operating system from within your currently running OS. So you can run Windows 7 and when you want to use XP you would load up Virtual Box and start your Virtual OS. The only limiting factor for this might be your computer specs. You need to share your memory with Windows XP. If you have 8 Gig of RAM then you can let XP use half.

It is something to look into. If you need a solution to the DLL problem directly I am afraid I would have to pass this question to other experts. I just saw that your question has been posted on the site for a while and it has not received a response. That is pobably because many of us are not familiar enough with Cubase and/or that particular problem.

Virtual Box can be downloaded free at

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thanks for your patience,
