    hey, it would be amazing if someone had any help with this..

     

    EDL manager not opening in Avid 5.5, it's installed, but wont open. it just hangs.

    Re: edl manager not opening avid 5.5

    hey..thanks so much...i did do a search, but this didnt seem to come up. sorry..

     

    i had a look here, within my settings folder there is nothing. in fact nothing in any of these folders (avidfatalerrorreports/EDL_temp_Folder/EDL_User_Settings/reports/Settings)

     

    which makes me think herin lies the problem. I wonder if there is a way just to re-install the EDL manager???

     

    thanks for your help.

    >I figured this out.

    In case anybody else has this issue, go to users/shared/edlmanager/avid users/settings and trash the folder called EDLSettings.avs.

    The last time I used EDL manager was in 2010 and I used the template RED_16, which has been replaced in newer versions with File-16. This old setting file was causing the error.

    oh sorry, that's misleading, I haven't figured it out....all the folders are empty for me, so no settings file to delete...

     

    but i think this may be my problem? there should be files within these folders, so my question now is, Can i install EDL manager by itself??? theat may fix this? worth a go anyhow...

    Re: edl manager not opening avid 5.5

    EDL Manager is installed as part of the entire package.  You might be able to run the uninstaller and un-check everything except EDL Manager.  Then run your original installer and just check that for install.

    You also might find it easier to just do the whole thing.  Make sure you have the latest version of 5.5 that your system supports, in case there are bug fixes you have missed.

    Re: edl manager not opening avid 5.5

    solved!

     

    the fresh install didnt work - so i tried uninstalling just edl manger, the uninstaller kept crashing - so i used an app call 'App Cleaner' to delete edl manager - then install it again (just edl manger) this worked! 

    now i can grade my lovely red rushes. woop! hope this helps someone

    Thanks, Nathan!

    I was having the same problem uninstalling.  A quick web query brough me to this thread.  Within 2:00 of reading this, I was able to locate, download & install "App Cleaner", sucessfully uninstall the errant EDL Manager, reinstall EDL Manager, and export an EDL that I needed to get out for grading.

    Worked like a charm.
