    Hey guys!

    I'm having some issues opening PT8.

    Here's the deal.

    My new Mac Pro arrived today. I spent most of the day loading it up with everything that I needed incl. a "moody" copy of "Waves Bundle" (bad idea in retrospect; I've now gotten rid of it!). Once it had been installed I attempted to open PT and was given a message about needing some more PACE InterLok extensions to open the programme and then, soon after, crashed (i.e. M-Audio had quit unexpectedly). I downloaded them and it no longer came up with the message, but when attempting to open anything it still did the "M-Audio had quit unexpectedly" business. Since it was only a days work, I resolved to just start again. I installed OSX to a separate HD and used that as the start-up disk. I then formatted the boot disk that I had been working on all day and cloned the newly installed OS onto it. Finally I reformatted the temporary OS HD. I was under the impression that this procedure should gave erased all trace of anything preventing me from using Tools, but I have just installed Tools before almost anything else and It has come up with the same message about needing PACE extensions. What the hell is up!? :mad:

    Are you using Pro Tools M powered or LE?

    Do you have the iLok USB key?

    I'm on M-Powered with a newly purchased iLok which I transferred my lisenced to. I couldn't run PT Updater for the same reason as PT but now I'm downloading 8.0.4 from Avid (only 8.0 comes on my DVD) and am hoping that (since 8.0.3 is I think and essential update) that will work. Fingers crossed!
