*Please note that the slightly newer installer for Windows is only needed if you have already updated to version 5.1.1 but Cubase Essential stops loading while the "Studio Manager" is being initialized. Also note that only the installer and the VST3 plug-in set have been modified in comparision to the older 5.1.1 update patch.
This is why the installer shows version 5.1.2 but Cubase Essential is still on version 5.1.1!
