    Avid DVD 6.1.1 and MC7.0.4 not working, mostly

    I upgraded four (identical) Media Composer 5.5.3 installations with MC 7.0.4.  I did not do anything with the Avid DVD 6.1.1.  After the ugrade, Avid DVD would not start -- the splash screen comes up for a long time, like usual, then it just disappears.  I uninstalled and reinstalled. Now, one works, but the other three do not. They fail in the same way they did after the upgrade.

    Suggestions?  I have repaired, uninstalled and reinstalled, but nothing has helped.

    Re: Avid DVD 6.1.1 and MC7.0.4 not working, mostly

    With any luck someone from Avid may check in here. I have MC 6.5, and this version came with Avid DVD 6.4.4 - however in the Download Center the only version available is 6.1.1.

    Avid DVD has been a "dead" product for quite some time, and isn't being offered by Avid anymore. It's very strange though that the last version available can not be downloaded.

    Another guess:   MC 5.5.3 was a 32-bit program and MC 7.0.4 is 64-bit.   When I first upgraded to MC 6, I installed the version of AvidDVD (6.4.4) that came with the 64-bit software.  I would definitely try re-installing the latest version of AvidDVD, if you can find a way to download it.

    Re: Avid DVD 6.1.1 and MC7.0.4 not working, mostly

    Tried that, but no luck.  Still get 45 seconds of splash screen, then nothing.

    Re: Avid DVD 6.1.1 and MC7.0.4 not working, mostly

    Installing Avid DVD 6.4.4 with a "borrowed" license gives me the same result -- 45 seconds of splash screen and then gone.

    Re: Avid DVD 6.1.1 and MC7.0.4 not working, mostly

    It just gets curiouser and curiouser.  For grins, I just tried it in Safe Mode.  Avid DVD not only starts up, but it is fully loaded in 10 seconds.

    Time to weed through the auto-starts and drivers.

    RickP:
    Suggestions?

    Rick,

    There is a setting in the Preferences hat says "Auto-load last project on startup"

    You may have had this selected.

    I think it is on by default.

    Unfortunately, if your last project gets corrupted, then Avid DVD will try to load it on start-up.

    Thus resulting in an abortion.

    Safe mode may go round that.

    Check it out in Safe mode again and see if that is selected.

    If so

    Deselect it.

    Then reboot and try again.

    Good luck

    Regards

    Douglas

    Re: Avid DVD 6.1.1 and MC7.0.4 not working, mostly

    I got hopefull when I saw, not the "Auto-Load last project" but the "Load sample media" box checked on the Safe Mode only system, but not on its normal brother.  Alas, that didn't do it.

    Ther are some .tmp folders under Sonic. In the past, deleting some of them has solved some strange problems...

    No luck there, either.

    Re: Avid DVD 6.1.1 and MC7.0.4 not working, mostly

    SOLUTION:  Finally determined something must have changed and caused an existing - and once compatible - installation of Roxio Creator Business 10 to cause the problem.  Uninstalled the Roxio and now AvidDVD works just like it used to.

    I only found this as more and more once-working systems stopped working.  This was a common element.
