    Hang Up on Intializing Audio after update to XP SP3

    I apologize if this has already been addressed but I think I did a bad thing!  I updated my Windows XP and apparently accepted SP3  I am running my old Media Composer - v2.8 on this and now when entering MC, the startup hangs up on Initializing Audio.  What have I done....what can I do?  Must I go back to SP2?  We are no longer under Avid's maintenance as the system is too old and my MC is slowly being phased out.  I appreciate any help to just get me back to editing.

    Re: Hang Up on Intializing Audio after update to XP SP3

    Welcome to the forums, avidosuite!

    I think this has been talked about in other threads, so feel free to poke around and see what you can find. Is your computer hooked up to a BOB?

    I had a hang-up error for a while and it turned out it had something to with the BOB. I disconnected it and let the system boot software only with no hitch. Then I reconnected the BOB and everything was fine after that!

    Hope this helps!

    Avidosuite.....

    OOPs.... :)

    MC 2.8 requires

    Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2.  Not sure what SP3 will do as it was never tested with that. 

    Read this KB article....

    Thanks Marianna!  I conceded and reverted back to SP2 and I'm back editing....that's all I wanted.  I guess somebody has to test these things....and in my conclusion....it didn't work!

     

    PS removing SP3 was not as easy as it sounded either.  Even though there wasn't a "remove" button, there is an uninstall hidden deep into the files.

     

    Thanks all!
