Hello,

yes, it doesn't work without desktop composition enabled / Aero. This is reported in the system requirements:
https://www.steinberg.net/en/products/c ... loads.html

It was recommended to have Aero and destop composition enabled also with Cubase 7.5 as disabling these options negatively affected the performance on Windows 7.

Kind regards,

That's a pretty big change IMHO. At the very least, I think this requirement should be much more prominently displayed than a *** footnote.
